From what i understand they are fairly different in terms of performance and charictoristics are you sure you would be happy with either its a chunk of money only to find out actually you wanted the other one

I do not know of anyone who has to do maintenance on a gripper yet? they are a little bit noisy on the odd occasion but in terms of performance Gripper wins hands down and if you want a quitter gripper then you just add 1 or 2 mil of friction modifier. as for finding a second hand one in a box good luck, they do come up once in a blue moon but you will have to be quick

I think the Grippers ought to be rebuilt at about 80k of very hard use, I bought mine secondhand and have done 50k on it. It still works very well just with less preload than a new one. A rebuild is £100.
