    So in response to my ad on the new classifieds section (which I really like BTW) I got reponses for a set of CH, Suzkua, and Woodcraft. Exact same price for all three exlcuding shipping.

    Simply from a on and off the tire perspective, which is easiest? Assuming wattage is the universal, how well does each hold up to average use.

    Thanks!

    Woodcrafts work flawlessly, and have amazing support.

    The chickenhawks and suzuka's are both made by chickenhawk. And there's nothing wrong with them.

    I think the Woodcrafts and the Chicken Hawks are the best of what's available. IMO, the Woodcrafts are a little nicer warmer, cover more of the tire and rim and have the idiot-proof connector that shuts the warmer off when it comes off the wheel to prevent burning up a warmer. However, the CH warmers are a close second. I have Woodcrafts and two sets of CH warmers (a standard set and a set of the Pro Line digital warmers) and I use the Woodcraft warmers most of the time.

    In the past, I've had great customer support from both companies.

    Chicken Hawks have been 100% reliable and hotter than any other brand we've used, for the past couple seasons.

    +1 on the CH.

    I also like the temp controller separate from the warmers. I modified by controller stand with light switches for each controller and put hooks on the back to wrap up and hold an extension cord. It works great and makes set-up, use and storage a snap.

    kanatuna You can't polish a turd..

    LOL I have had my $150 Tyre Soxx for two years and have had no problems. I know this isnt on your list but its my only experience with new warmers. I bought a 10 year old set of used CH's and they died after a few months....but hell, they were 10 years old. lol

    Woodcraft because of the dual-temp feature. You should want that flexibility between pit sessions.

    Easiest on and off: Woodcraft plus when you take them off they automatically unplug so you will never burn them.
    Best racer support: Chickenhawk

    Not sure what you're paying but you should see if you can get your hands on a set of Termorace ONE's or the Termorace GRID model.

    They're the new hotness.
