The Gen 7 addressed on of my issues with having a different self-application method for the arm and leg. I used it in two classes last week and the feedback has been great. I may end up replacing some of my SOFTT-W's with them.
Comparing this to the SOF, the SOFT, the SOFTT and SOFTT-W will show you that they are really close to the same thing. The small differences that make this one my favorite is that the locking mechanism is easier to lock, and the reminder to record the time is built in with the locking steps. The SOF series devices do pack down a little smaller, but not enough so you would notice. All three colors are exactly the same device, so choose safety orange, black, or training blue. The device can be reused, so you don't need a special training device to learn how to use it, just put this one on to learn, then take it off and put it in your kit. I don't know why the blue one costs more.
