Weigh Safe True Tow vs Equalizer

I currently have a 10K/1k Equalizer that I've been using for years. It's made it through 3 trailers so far. The current tongue weight on my trailer is in the 1000 to 1100 range so I'm thinking about stepping up my hitch. (The trailer is about 7000 to 7300 loaded.) It's either going to be another Equalizer 12k/1200 model or a True Tow.

From what I've seen of the TT, they look nice and very well thought out. The scale is a nice feature to. That's one of the main reasons I want one is because of the ability to weigh the tongue and adjust the weight distribution. But the bottom line is how well does it help with sway? I've always used the Equalizer because it works great. Never had an issue but the TT looks like a nice hitch.

Has anyone used or currently uses a TT hitch? I'm curious what you think about it.

I havenít used the weigh safe but it does look like a sweet set-up. Like the fact it gives that couple extra inches to be able to drop tailgate. If the scale is accurate, nice.

I wish I'd seen that Weigh Safe before I got my Equalizer. I have no complaints about it, other than it is 'creaky' unless liberally lubed, but that Weigh Safe is high tech!

looks to me like a high tech approach to a simple common sense issue. Yes the scale is a good idea , yes the tail gate clearance is nice to have enough to clear the power jack (in not all cases this is true from the OEM). If you where to use the head on a few different trailers I could see this being helpful but on one trailer with almost always the same load this should be a set it up once then the only time it changes is if the truck or the trailer has something that changes . I ran a duel cam Reese for years on several trailer , never hear of anyone talking about those hitches anymore. There worked period, set it and forget it.
