Blue Ox Alpha or RM Falcon 2

Hi all,
I just bought a new toad and after 12 years of use, have decided to get a new towbar as well. It's down to a Blue Ox Alpha or Roadmaster Falcon 2. Does anyone own one of these, and if so, can you give some feedback pro or con?
Thanks

I have the Falcon 2 for over 5 years. Pull my Grand Cherokee at least 35000 miles now with no issues. I look it over before each trip and keep it clean. Other than that just use it.

What is the weight of your new toad?
I picked up a Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain on Craigslist with all the accessories and the Roadmaster rockguard for $550.
It is designed for 6,000 lbs but it is great for any angles or inclines and is easier to connect and disconnect.
Look around Craigslist and see if you can save a lot of money.

Thanks for your responses. I've decided to go with the Blue Ox, simply because I'm getting a Blue Ox mounting bracket. The Blue Ox bracket is one piece, as opposed to the Roadmaster, which is a two piece and requires the use of a crossbar with your towbar. With the Blue Ox, a crossbar isn't needed(one less step for hooking up).

P.S. My toad is a Ford Focus(about 3k lbs.)
