The group buy was for the Redline stands, and if I'm not mistaken, it's going on right now. You can do a search on it. As far as the stand quality goes, there's nothing wrong with the Handy stands. I've rocked my bike back & forth while lifted and they were fine. If I wasn't satisfied, I would have sent them back. I too want the best of everything for my bike and protection when riding, but I couldn't justify getting a single stand for the same price that I got two for.
That's just me though.
