It's also important to keep in mind that a "lifetime warranty" should be thought of in terms of the lifetime of the company, not you. Not to pick on Mantus, but they're only two years old. I appreciate their warranty terms but only time will tell if they're around to back it up when necessary. Same goes for the others.
