I wondered the same thing. It seems the 8.5 stands are highly sought after but then it seems like there are plenty of people who don't like them either. Or the newer assaults for that matter. Do a search for assault vs alpha and there's plenty of guys that don't like even the newer assaults.
Does the fact that they are hard to come by make them more tempting? Not trying to judge the OP at all. Just wondering if they're all they are hyped up to be. Guess I need to get my hands on 1 and see for myself.
Some people really get into the lighter weight. I have the newer version of the 8.5, it has 2 buttons, and the new tube with sliding adjustment. Love mine, and honestly wouldn’t like saving a pound or two to lose some nice added features.
Physically I don’t know if I would fit on the new assault. My heels are the only thing that fits on my assault when I sit. The new one I don’t know if I would be able to sit.
But if I had to sell a stand, and could only have one, it would be the alpha. Just because it’s worth it’s weight with size 15’s and an iwom during the rut and gun season. My assault would just be too small
