    TOTALLT TRUE IN MOST CASES. I TAKE IT THAT A COMPANY SUCH AS NYES MAKES SURE THEIR EAGLE OR OTHER ROTATING ASSEMBLIES ARE NOT FOREIGN MADE.

    Most all your lower dollar stuff is but what sets most good shops apart is checking it when they get it, you'd be amazed the amount of shops that just trust everything is right. Eagle, Callies Compstar, K-1, and several other decent parts are not made in the USA and are only as good as the shop installing them

    Good price for sure

    Did a quick search over on drr, 2 topics mention wheels motors
    first one, one guy said they seem to be ok but the rotator is from china, with the 2nd guy saying do a LOT of homework before purchasing followed by save yourself money and time by calling sunset.

    2nd thread mentioned a wheeler 582 that was rebuilt 2 times in the first 75 passes.

    Also a quick search of the tomahawk stuff, it seems like most companies they make several different types so make sure its good the good tomahawk crank and rods in it, the lower version are very cheap to buy.

    Other then that, for 7k and you feel comfortable jump on the deal
