    I have done alot of searching and read quite a few articals and this sounds like a good option. Are any of you guys actually running this case and if so what do you think of it?
    Especially curious about it mated to the SM-465.

    Thanks for the info in advance.

    Kicks butt! Nice case, gears, and workmanship, no doubt about it. Especially behind a 203 range box :)

    The best reason to run it behind the 203 is the greater range of gearing options...1:1, 2:1, 3:1, and 6:1

    Just another opinion for what it is worth - The LoMax 3:1 205 seems to be first class all the way ! Very well thought out. I was one of the ones who got tired of waiting for it to arive and I ended up going with a 3+ gear in my range box instead but I would love to step up to the LoMax if I still need more gear .

    There's a CK5er from Maine that has one.....though the username escapes me at the moment.

    He has photos of the entire conversion and buildup online here, so if you are REALLY interested to know more you must SEARCH for the answer..... :)
