...i don't know why you'd buy one over an LN.
There have been too many posts from people saying that they got a plane that was wrong, and the manufacturer never made it right (and it wasn't the fault of the retailer that things weren't made right).
I've not heard of that ever happening with any LN.
Be different if you lived 10 miles from the clifton factory and could go knock on their door. Until they have the spotless track record that LN has in service after sale, and/or they make a functionally superior product, you should get a discount on the cliftons (and to my knowledge, the price difference that used to exist has evaporated).
