Hi, Rich.

I have no info on the Create, but I have an Orion P2800 to turn a 402CD 12
feet above my TH11 (with an M2 6M7 between them).  The Orion is one strong
rotor(!) and very well made.

I was talking with Rod W7CY about this not too long ago and he was also
thinking about the Create vs. Orion.  I THINK he said there were some
concerns with Create.  Not the rotors, themselves, but perhaps with
availability or service, I'm not sure which.  In any case, he just bought
an Orion.

Good luck and let me know if you need some dumb brawn when the time comes.  :)

73, Dick
