even if the bike didnt have spools, you can still flip the hooks around and it will work, I would get it if I didnt have 2 already.
Yeah, but in my experience the cheap stands don't work well without spools.
Spools are like 8 bucks. You CAN throw bolts in there, but spools are cheap enough that there's no reason to not have them.
The cheaper stands work reasonably well with spools. That being said, I have three pitbull stands and no regrets on spending the money on them. I just wish they made one for my current bike still.
Oh well. For 40 bucks, it's a decent buy.

I haven't really noticed any huge difference in spool rear stands, not enough to spend 3x the price on PitBull. The only practical difference is how high they lift, which is usually an issue only if you're running tire warmers. I actually really liked the bolt-together aluminum stand that HF sold a couple of years ago.
Front stands have quite a bit more "design" to them in how they cradle the forks. Even at that, the better stands may not fit your particular bike as well as a lesser quality stand - but I'm more inclined to spend extra on the front stand.
Front pin stands that lift from the steering head, I wouldn't do anyone but PitBull or a specialty stand for a certain model bike, because the fit is critical for them to work right.
