The stands are the same--I just like the big 2" x 8" chunks of wood better. Stacking them would give the same effect. The tall chunks I have under the front of the Cougar are just barely wider than the stand bases and I don't like that as well.thanks for the photos. that is what i thought you were talking about. i see you have the front stands on some four by stock. that makes sense. two stock only added an inch and a half. kinda' makes that stands a little vulnerable at the top edge of their range.
why do you like the blue stands better than the red ones? they look fairly similar.
thanks again for taking the time to snap the photo and then post it. much appreciated!
