I have the protools 105HD which is pretty much the same bender mine just has thicker arms and the degree ring has a stop that you can set to do multiple bends that the JD2 doesnt have.. You cant go wrong with either the protools 105 or the JD2 model 3. Heres a good review of the 3 major benders.

I paid 1050 for my 105HD, Stand, Degree Ring, handle, 180* 1.75" 6CLR die, and Bend Tech Pro. I got a really good deal through a vendor off anothe site. If you were to buy it all seperately it would be more. I pirced it out seperately below.

All the stuff for the bender was 600 dollars, Then bend Tech was 275, then the die was 310. Thats 1185 before shipping.

I would join Offroadfabnet.com then send a pm to KeithXtreme, he owns Chopworx.com and sells protools. Hes who I got my bender through.

a standard die is only a 120* die (120* die wont bend 120*). Your going to need the 240* die to build a stinger.

I have the HD bender with the more expensive die and I bought bend tech software with it. Thats why mine was 1050. Which is a really good price considering I have the upgraded die set and software.
