Default exhaust choices

So trying to decide on which pipes to install on my jackpot, Ive narrowed down all my choice to a select few. rpw slash, rpw big slash, the hacker rippers, hacker jokers or the x-bow vic pipes. I know the rpw are a popular choice around here, has anyone tryed the rpw and hackers?

Not a fan of the Hacker company, it's product, and customer service both have a bad rep; for a good reason

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

I have the Big Slash, and LOVE it ! Best sounding pipe I have ever owned. I had two Harleys with several sets of pipes, including a Thunderheader which until I bought this RPW Big slash was my favorite, and none of them sounded as good as this pipe. And, trust me, I am picky about the way a V twin sounds.

I have the slash and am very happy with them. Don't let the frame cut scare you, it is very easy with a dremmel tool or similar cut off tool. If you have any questions about this exhaust I am happy to help.

I have a set of Hacker Zoomies on my Highball that I've had for about a month or so and I absolutely love them. Sound mean and look great. As far as the product quality I don't have any issues there, and cost couldn't be beat. I will agree on the customer service aspect they could use some work. My biggest complaint about them was that they told me 3-5 weeks to receive it and for me it was more like 7-8. Honestly it wouldn't have even been that big of an issue about the wait if they would of been upfront about the actual expectation and timing. I called twice throughout the wait time and I was told should be shipping this week or next and always felt like I never was really getting an honest answer. Almost as if they were worried I was going to cancel my order because it was a taking longer then anticipated. Other then that I thought they were helpful in answering any questions I had when I was tuning the bike and installing the pipes.
