I've never played one, but I've played prototypes that look damn near close. My suggestion is go and try it out first. It'll obviously sound different in your room/with your kit, but if you like the sound and it's a good deal (no cracks/keyholing) I'd say get it.

Have you ever tried the Powerslave ride before? It would be a shame if you spent that much money on it and didn't like it.

Well just remember all the different factors that will affect how it sounds for you. Like what stick you're using, your technique, the acoustics of your room, etc. Not trying to discourage you by any means. I by stuff on a whim all the time. But in all fairness, it's a bad habit, and although I haven't gotten something I don't like in a long time, it WILL happen again at some point.

Is there anyway you could go and compare them before buying?

Then go for it! I'm sure it kicks the hell out of both of my rides.
