Looks nice, but no description if it provide additional electrical decoupling too. A bit expensive.

HOLY COW! $900 bucks for a 1.5" coupling, it better be made out of titanium or something. It does look like a good coupling though.

The Globe Composite DriveSaver is another alternative that slips between your existing transmission / shaft coupling.

That's the sweet sounding part, to me. ...if it works.

It is expensive, but you wouldn't have to buy a coupling for the shaft. This is both coupling and "flexible-coupling". With the "drive saver" or PYI Flexible Coupling, one still must buy a coupling... FWIW.
