Need help picking slipon

I am ordering a slipon in the next few days and I have it narrowed down to three brands...jardine, arrow, and two bros...what would be my best choice for an all around good can. I would love to have an arata or akro, but, just can't afford those.
Thanks guys

Re: Need help picking slipon

IMO the Akrapovic is the way to go for a slip-on. I understand if it's a little out of your range but for the little bit of extra $ it's so worth it. I was in the same situation as you and chose to wait a little longer 'til I could afford the Akro slip-on, which now I wish I had waited just a bit more so I could afford the complete system. If you must get an exhaust can now I would definately go with the Two Bros. I have a couple butt shots in my gallery if you want to see what the Akrapovic can looks like mounted.

Re: Need help picking slipon

Okay, drop arrow from the list and add scorpion on there....

I'm sorry, I'm just really stressin out about this because I don't want to make a bad decision.
I would love to get an akro but being a college student all my money goes towards school, house, and rent, so after all the bills are paid i'm left with about ~$450

Re: Need help picking slipon

One exhaust that is not on your list that I would recommend is the M4. It is trapazoidal in shape, similar in design to the Arata, and they are good quality in terms of performance, durability and price(under $400).

Re: Need help picking slipon

i searched and searched for my 07 a slipon. year and a half later, i finally ordered the Arrow titanium and midpipe, can make it a full system down the road if need be. love the look, love the sound. had some buddies that had KR (which sounded really good, i just didn't care for the carbon fiber) another who had Akra (also didn't care for the carbon fiber) and another w/ ti Arrow. out of those 3, ARROW won. really wanted the arata, but decided it wasn't worth the extra money to me. (plus i got a great deal for a new pipe from a customer of mine, so i couldn't pass it up)
