I have the ProTools 105HD and love it. A friend has the JD2 and it might be a tad nicer, but they are both proven machines.

I have a JD2 model 32 bender that I use for 1.75" round tube. Well worth the money and can be adapted to hydraulic if needed.

I have a Pro-Tools 105HD and a Williams Lobuck. I hate that the 105 is mounted horizontally, but I have no fear of breaking the dies and there is a better selection of dies for the 105. At some point I am going to design a mount to flip mine vertically, but beyond that I would recommend the 105.

I'll follow-up that I converted my 105HD to hydraulic with a HF cylinder, and mounted the bender on a rolling stand. Now I can move it around the shop as needed instead of bolting it place, and it makes it much easier to not waste limited space.

Rogue .. takes less floor space , full bend , powered , easy to use , if you upgrade to the roller dies your part doesn`t need to be lubed so you aren`t constantly wiping grease off the tubing (and your hands) , and its affordable
