What is the difference between a standard vs. a deluxe torque arrestor?

While not being noticeable at a glance, there are a number of notable differences between a “Standard” TA-48-BLK vs. a “Deluxe” TA-48-BLK Torque Arrestor. These include the overall part weight difference of 5 plus precent, approximately 40% difference in flexibility or force required to deflect the torque arrestor outwards for installation, the brand of clamp supplied as standard and an increase in the price for the deluxe. The price difference is due to both the increase in material molding cycle time for thicker crass section as well as the standard model produces more parts per molding cycle for more efficient manufacturing resulting in a cost reduction.

The standard torque arrestor is more popular than the deluxe selling at a 1:30 ratio. It comes down to customer preference, we do have accounts who continue to use the deluxe model, preferring its more robust characteristics over the standard model.
