Well, i cant for sure say that Cycra's are the best but they sure are sturdy.
They come in Black or natural aluminum and you can pick from a variety of plastic colors. The powermadd hand guards are are alos attractive in my opinion but they seem to be more for roost and mud protection instead of bark buster type action.
DO a search for guards and i am sure youll find a lot of different opinions on other brand s as well like moose and others. Good luck!
