Like Sherm, I have both Stealth Rack offerings. On the plus side, it has a smaller footprint than tripods and just looks cleaner and nicer, in my opinion. I prefer it over a full rack because I use the tom mounts on my bass drum and don't need anything else in front of or over the bass drum. It makes it easy to mount accessories, which you can partially see in one of the two pics I'll post.

On the down side, I was disappointed that it lengthened my setup time compared to tripod stands. It would be very fast if you could keep the pieces together all the time, but I need to break them down in order to fit them in my hardware case. That part is a pain, and the chrome scratches easily in the hardware case. I don't know what Gibraltar could do about that -- probably nothing -- but I don't like it.

I haven't experienced the problem that Paul mentioned, though I can see how it could be an issue with certain setups. In my case, I first position the snare basket where I want it to go, and then the cymbal stand at the other end is pretty adjustable to accommodate the position of the snare basket.

These pics weren't taken to necessarily highlight to the Stealth Rack, but you can see both sides a bit to get an idea of how they can be used in an actual gigging situation.
