Why do people seem to like the stiletto so much? Nearly everything about the hellraiser looks/seems better. Anyone own one or have played both and can help me tell the difference?

the Stiletto series hangs better in my opinion. but that is just me.

well, it just had better balance from what I felt. though the hellraiser was lighter also, and I prefer heavy basses, one of my odd quirks.

All the Hellraisers I've played felt like cheap basses. Stilettos are just a pleasure to play.

Hellraisers just seemed like crap.
The Stiletto just sang for me.
and it was heavier.

Stiletto Elite-5s are a work of art... Feels amazing, sounds amazing, and looks badass.

eh i like the C-4 & C-5 best

stiletos and elites are shaped odd + ugly headstock (to me)

and the Omen and hellraiser are entry level at best....

So far most say the Hellraiser feels/sounds cheap. Personally, I definitely like what the Hellraiser looks like more, however, in the end it's all about sound. In terms of specs, is there anything worth mentioning that one has over the other? I compared them and nothing seemed too different, but I'd like a second opinion.

Keep em coming!

I'm pretty sure the Stiletto has a problem with the bridge saddles. Something about them not moving?

I haven't had this problem but I haven't changed the action on it in forever.
