Gator has a good reputation for quality from what I've read and heard. Be patient. If you think the torture is bad now, wait until you have ordered and are waiting for it to arrive. If you think life is moving too fast for you, order a pit. The wait time no matter how accurate the estimate, will be almost unbearable. Also, if you're wavering between going to a slightly larger size in any direction, do it.
