No one has used one for any length of time. It looks like a serious copy of the Train-Li, but in all fairness, any dual rail bender needs to look basically the same.

The finish of the metal is not as good, and it overall it looks less finished.

The Train-Li has gotten very good reviews, and the stresses on a rail bender bending both rails can be high, so the question is what is the quality of the bearings, and the strength of the metal?

There's no long term usage yet, so the jury is out.

But my personal opinion was that the prices I saw for the Aristo were not much cheaper, so it was not worth the risk for me.

If there is a huge difference in price between the two for you, it might be worth the risk.

Personally, I never buy cheap tools.
