I've been making a Frankenstein out of a gravity bullseye monster and I wanted to upgrade the inferior skewers. I looked at the salsa and was scared away regarding price until I saw the tree fort website. They were selling a pair for less than the price of one on the open market. I saved even more by choosing the purple color. As for the skewers themselves, they have an appealing handle in terms of feel that is longer than most other skewers resulting in more leverage when tightening. A real plus from a leverage standpoint.
Moral: look good. Feel good. Play good.
