Default Vance and Hines Blackout 2 into 1

Is anyone here running the Vance and Hines Blackout 2 into 1? Thoughts? This is not the competition series, but a longer pipe. I haven't seen one on a bike so it may be a newer, or reincarnated, product.

It is new.
I think it looks cool but do not know anything about it outside what the adcopy says ...I am long way from being able to do exhaust but I added this to my list for when the time comes.

The collector to primary fit is not the usual quality V&H fitment. It should be far quieter than the war-zone racket of their competition or "Indy" pipe, while pulling better low-end torque as well. Sleeker than the D&D Fatcat and probably a fair amount lighter.
The Supertrapp and Fatcat are the two leaders in stump pulling torque.

Really looks like a poor collector design.

I think someone was confused.

Pretty sure the Thunderheader doesn't have packing material.

They use directional "vanes" as the baffle.

And I ran a Thunder for about 12,000 miles and it was ok. It did get a little rattley (werd) one time....so I took a piece of wood and smacked it up the butt and it tightened things up and never rattled again!

Any updates on these pipes? Curious as to perf and sound levels. Love the look of my side shots but find them just a bit harsh. These could be an option.
