No not really. I do have my eye on an old white magic 1200pro. Isn't that the same thing with a different sticker package? I just worry about direct drives in the Redding heat. It can be tough. My 870 seems to handle it. Not sure how the CDS will do when summer comes around.You must be looking to buy a used 1200 somewhere. Good luck
Funny, my 870 hates the cold and rain. On humid days it likes to kick on the check engine light and surge. Turns out there is some problem with an environmental sensor that hates humidity. It works itself out but can be a bit alarming.
