Gear Question

So why are the Flite's so much cheaper...

So why are the Flite's so much cheaper than say the M9's or NXT's? What aren't you getting on these that you do on the more expensive models, as visually they appear the same. I tried looking at Flow's website, but it didn't want to work for me for some reason.

Basically the NXTs and the other top Flow models are ligher and offer faster set up and adjustment. The Flites have 2 mini-ratchets on the inner straps and "normal" ladder guides on the outer. Whereas the higher models have 4 mini-ratchets. There are also toolless forward lean adjustment on the higher end models, too. Basically you need fewer tools and less time to set up the NXTs and they are lighter.
