I've used both and both are great.
J&M obviously has a price advantage.
MM allows you to adjust caster, but I never even touched that in all the time I used them. The S197 has plenty of caster built into the geometry already.

Gotta correct you on that...the *new* J&M will do both caster and camber. It is also reversible so that it has a much greater range of camber adjustment.

Both brands advertise 0.7 degrees of caster range.

I was not aware, thanks! Looks like their design has become very similar to the MM plates (I'll leave it at that).

I think they've only been out for a month or two. I wouldn't expect anybody to know about them.

First thing I noticed. Making it reversible probably changes it enough to never become a patent issue.
 
I was interested in the Ground Control camber plates.
FrenchBoss, have you researched the GC plates at all? I'm trying to decide which one to go with.
