Not sure that I trust paddocks to be more than about 1.5mm thick though! Seen plenty of cheap sliders go into an event pristine and come out the other side as bent as anything.
I definitely want something galv'd, but want a powdercoated/painted finish as I don't really like the galv look on bodywork. Safari Equip are hot dip galv'd then PC, whereas most others are zinc plated then PC which doesn't cut it for me.
Bearing in mind that at £202 for paddocks galv, it's only £38 more for SE which get very good reviews (eg Lewis above).
