We have done some upgrades on our trail reducer since last posting here. The design is still the same as far as dimensions go though. Since there was an incident reported here related to what we felt was a ball loosening up on another manufacturers product which I feel was no fault of his we just decided to go the extra mile to produce what we feel is a better, even though not needed, upgrade to our product. Note that I even the other manufacturer to say that I felt it was not the fault of his product that caused to incident for what that is worth. Anyhow,,,,,,, OUR new version has the same layout as our previous one but has a steel insert that the ball will thread into so it is no longer a steel to aluminum connection. We have also gone to 7075 aluminum instead of 6061 aluminum. Yes, it is a little more costly to produce but we are offering it at the same price as our earlier version. This is, as before, a CNC machined part built to OUR specifications. Hopefully the picture below will make sense.
