I have K-bodies, Revos, Jorgys, and GS. The longest Jorgy and Revo I have is 48”, the K-bodies I have some 60”. They will all flex somewhat (even the shorter ones) across a long span. That doesn’t indicate a poor clamp. My glue ups haven’t been a lot easier with these clamps than they were with pipe clamps (ever notice how much a pipe flexes over that length?) That said, the Jorgies are heavier made than the Bessey’s, and they have smooth bars, making glue clean off a little easier. They also have longer screws, which I find useful. The Revos are a cross between the GS (which they bought some years back) and the K-bodies, they have the deeper jaws of the GS; better handles than any others; and those annoying black covers that keep sliding off the fixed head. I don’t think you can lose with any of them, and I also think your experience had some other problem behind it. I seriousy doubt it was the clamps.
