Recommend swingarm spools please

Hello,

I would like to buy some good swingarm spools to be used as protection as well in case of a fall...i'm on budget but looking for quality ( sounds contradictiong but you know the best price quality ratio)..
There are ones sold on ebay for around 10 usd...other sold by protek for 20 usd...both use what they call CNC plastic which they claim is very strong....

Any recommendation?

Thanks

Speedy's Spools... $12.00 and anything from Speedy is high quality and worth every cent.

These aren't plastic.. they are milled from solid aluminum.

There really is no need to look anywhere else.

I'd also recommend Speedy's flatfoot while you're on his site ordering the spools.

I had the speedys spools on.But thought i would try a different type.The newer one were thicker and made it more difficult getting on and off the rear stand.So went back to the speedy spools and the others sit in a box with some tools....

Yeah.. I'd like those T-Rex fronts, but after paying only $12 for rear sliders I really don't want to spend $40 for the front.

Good point.

I didn't buy my engine guards till I dropped my bike in the driveway and damaged two fairings.

that is all my point, I did not crash and all I care about is putting a max protection to my lovely red V....I finished equiping myself with protection (helmets (RX-Q), drayko jeans, leather jacket, mesh jacket, ad pants, boots (AXO primato) etc... (total cost around 1640 USD...)
now it is the turn for my bike....rear and frond spools then a custom made crash bars....

Nope. Workin' up my nerve to shorten the front, repair the crack, rough it up and 'rattle-can' it black, then mount it up w/ a Buell 'beak' I've got.

DEFINITELY I'll have a "one-off" (IF I don't already...).
