Sail Track Tines Marine vs.MVBinfo/Dutchman

We'll be installing a new track system for the main and are looking at products from Tides Marine and Dutchman Sail Hardware. Both offer similar track systems and cars. Can anyone point to a reason to choose one over the other?

The Dutchman system looks interesting and I can agree with some of their comparison points. One thing they don't mention it how high it raises the sail when down. The stacking of their slides looks like it could be significant.

I have the Strong Track (Tides) system. Put it in last year. Got a new main sail and the sail rep was a dealer for it so he installed it for me at almost no charge. I have no complaints, but I still need to go forward and pull the last few feet of sail down. Mostly due to friction in the main halyard.
