Three years ago, Bob Sims raved about the RF1000, so I tried one on at the 
Competition Accessories tent at Mid Ohio.  I liked it, bought it for $280, 
and am still happy with it.  They're available in closeout now for obscenely 
low prices.  I'd guess the RF1100 is incrementally better, but the RF1000 is 
a steal right now.
