First thing that comes to mind is shipping cost. You're in Texas, and there are quite a few great pit makers in Texas, so no need to pay to have something shipped in from another state IMO. From what I understand, Horizons and Langs are mighty fine, but in your state you have Jambo, Klose, Gator, Pitmaker, and others.
Your idea of spending the $$ it takes to get heavy metal is a very good one btw - you will not regret that decision.
