excellent couplers for high-balling
March 31, 2010
from Gainesville, GA United States
One important point about these couplers is that they seem to last almost forever. These are the ones to have if one's trains are going to be high-balling for long periods of time. They don't ever seem to have "break-aparts" wheather traveling level, up or down hills, around curves or whatever, regardless of speed. On the other hand, however, if switching is going to be the main operation with one's trains most of the time, than EZ Mates are the best for that. This is because the McHenrys' are much harder to uncouple (be it using an automatic uncoupler or a manual one) and can be a real pain at times when doing a lot of switching. Whereas the EZ Mates tend to come apart quite easily, but at the same time, because of frequent "break-aparts," don't work near as well high-balling as the McHenrys' do.
