for anyone who cares, earlier i said i decided to get the cheaper upp qp flares instead of the maier. well after many nights tossing and turning wondering if i did the right thing, i just called upp and cancelled. im gonna call maier and order as soon as they open in a few hours. now i can sleep good knowing there is a good product coming to my doorstep soon. thanx to everyone who helped me out in the decision to splurge. i just wish i had done it sooner instead of wasting all this valuable time.
