Default difference in hard dogs (why is this one so cheap)

so looking around for hard tops, came across gomiata.com and found a bolt in hard dog for $150. all the other ones are like $300+ what's the scoop? I would assume the bolt in doesn't provide as much strength i guess. think it's worth it for a guy who loves to drive, and dreams of being a racecar driver but doesn't have any means of fulfilling that dream?

its likely the Hard Bar, which is a two point roll bar. It works, but its definitely not competition safe. You will NOT be able to get on track if you are with NASA/SCCA and they see it.

With that said, i don't even think the hard bar is that cheap, so please link us.
