Strengths: The Price! I got it for $7.99 on ebay. It wasn't an auction, just a buy it now straight from the company. The design is genious! Not only does it move your tank up, it also puts a slight tilt on it. But it isn't too much tilt, and also not too little. The black finish looks really good. The end where it mounts to your gun has a slit instead of holes. This alows for fine adjusting. Nice idea.
Weaknesses: The gun mount end as I described before seems like it could slide around if it wasn't tightened all the way. It has never happend, but it's a possibility. Some locking washers should do the trick though. I also wish it was a rail mount instead of a standard 2-hole configuration. The reason for this is after you put on a standard bottomline the asa is moved back, because the screws have to be in front of the ASA on a bottomline. It it were a dovetail the ASA would be directly below the drop forward's end. The solution to this problem is to either get the 7.0 model, the 7 inch one, or do like I did and get a Check-It products Uni-Mount. This bottomline has a cage design that allows the ASA to be directly under the screws.
Conclusion: I gave this a 9 because its excellent quality for the price you pay for it. Although there may be better drop forwards out there, you wont find one for even double this one's price. Perhaps in the future they will make a dovetail version.
