Question Dragons4you vs. Reptile basics rack

Hi All,

I'm planning on moving my small rosy boa collection to a rack and was hoping to get some feedback on the two racks I'm considering.

First option, the Dragons4you, ABS, 15/30Q combo rack (see it here: http://www.dragons4you.net/combo_page.html). PROS - I like the flexible tub options, shorter height, and the price is nice ($230 with heat tape added). CONS/? - I'm not sure of the material, never used ABS before, and I've seen some mixed reviews of Dragons4You on the BOI.

Second option is the Reptile Basics, Iris Sweaterbox rack (see it here: http://www.reptilebasics.com/iris-sw...y-or-back-heat). PROS - I've seen a lot of positive feedback on Reptile basics on the BOI, four shelves instead of 3. CONS - more expensive ($299 with belly heat option), taller, one size tubs and extra cost for tub dividers ($8.75 ea.).

Thanks in advance.

Best,
Ethan

RBI all the way, personally. I own two ( was selling one, but decided not to!) They are great racks. Sturdy construction and i got mine very quickly when i ordered. The dividers are great for small stuff like baby bps and such!

I make racks professionally - but that's not why I'm writing here - I want to see you get the right product for your needs. The brand matters less than the material being used. ABS plastic is hard and brittle and will crack and split with age. PVC is the much preferred plastic used for cages. RBI, Animal plastics, mine, C-serpents, and a few others use that material. The next important thing to think about now that you've narrowed it down to going with a builder using PVC is the quality and thickness of the material. I personally use 1/2" as to do AP, and C-serpents. RBI does a great job using 3/8 but personally I don't care for cutting corners. The other two factors are I consider are customer service and turn around time. You need to be comfortable with the person you are buying from, and see what other people say about them, maybe see a few examples. Turn around time is a factor depending on your needs. Most rack builders can get racks out in a few days, some take a few weeks (that's where I'm at right now) and some take months upon months without telling you a single word about your rack's progress toward completion and delivery.

Its a big investment in your collection, one not to take lightly.

If you have any questions feel free to message me or visit my facebook page, I'll be happy to answer any questions I can.
