i think it's a waste of money, and definitely not an upgrade.
I started with a straight and followed with 2 slants. The slants both outrun the straight, big time. 6 months kicking.
I'll say it again, Zoom is a great company who stands behind their products and will go the extra mile to make things right (short shipment mistakes, warranty issues and such)..
