Maxi paws can go from pc to full with a simple clip maneuver.

I think the response you are getting is likely due to the fact that mini rotors generally have a poor track record. Your not going to save enough to justify the difference.

Put a good quality full circle full size rotor in there and you will be far better of.

Impact heads are the history of this industry, you pup.

So are brass gravity retracting pop-up heads with hydraulic valves installed with a triangular spacing pattern. Being historical doesn't make it good.

They have a comforting sound that transports one back to simpler times.

I HATE HATE HATE the sound of an impact head at 6:00 in the morning. Bad enough I have to listen to all the stinkin' birds, I don't need impacts waking me up as well.

I'd say the #1 reason customers ask us to replace impacts is for that same reason, the damn thing wake you up.
