If she had to do it all over again she say she would have gone with a Reiter or Enoch.

Just my .02
I agree! I'd definitely go with a new Bart Reiter Regent (Whyte Laydie Tone Ring) over a new Eastman EBJ-WL1 Whyte Laydie. Typical street-pricing is $1495 Bart Reiter Regent plus $130 HSC = $1625 vs. $1395 Eastman EBJ-WL1 which includes HSC.
