Clever design makes rack adaptable to different hulls
I have owned Burnham racks since the early days. This new rack has a couple of great improvements. I purchased for a 2x. It is actually a 1x rail, with an extension, and wider slings. In other words, you could break it down and also use it for a 1x. Earlier versions had wing nuts on the u-bolts. They were hard on your fingers, especially loading up in winter for the southern trip! This one has nice plastic "thumbscrews" which give you more leverage and are easier on the fingers. It also seems that this generation is a lighter gauge aluminum. Still plenty strong, but easier to handle. Perfect in every way.
