Same here. I have 700-series hardware dating back to the early 2000s that has been gigged HEAVILY and not treated nicely at all. No issues with anything. I made a smart decision for once in my life.I've used the 740s in the past, too, and they are great-feeling pedals, for sure. In fact, the entire 700 series of stands are my favorites. I've gigged them a lot without a single failure. That's why I've owned a (ever-growing) set for over 25 years.
