Holland's radial baffle QD MB does not have holes at the bottom to kick up dirt or debris.

That is total BS! You had better look again they are not alike and the Holland brake has been around a little bit longer.

The newest radial is the best brake I have used, and no ports on the bottom as another poster erronously claimed either.

I have found that the radial brake is much better than the older QD style.

It seems that the top 3 brakes for big guns right now are the Holland Radial, DE brake and the APS, take your pic.
