Thanks! The totems in my opinion are a big improvement. because they are multilayered, solid, and there are no gaps or spaces, you can basically tighten to your hearts content. I have got the bolts CRANKED down, and because I am using washers, there is no surface damage or cracking occurring on the plastic. They hold the tubes very rigidly, I cannot bend them with my hands. Also, the built in endstop mounts are a big convenience, as well as the tensioners. The cons of the totem system is that they will require more than two rolls of filament to print the kit, and the 100mm m5 bolts can be hard to source. But if you can get around that, they are great.
