Default Fastway trailer hitches

Anybody have any experience with the Fastway trailer hitch brand? I`m looking for a drop down hitch so I don`t have to keep swapping hitches when I want to tow a different trailer. I need the hitch ball to be level with the hitch tongue when it`s adjusted up. So far I`ve only found 2 brands that achieve this level adjustment. It`s the way my boat tows the best. And when I tow my other trailers, this hitch is to high for them so I switch out to a lower ball height hitch. After reading a few stories of hitches snapping off the tongues, I`m looking for a new hitch. I`ve had this one for awhile now, so I don`t trust it as much anymore.
This is my current hitch I use for the boat.

I bought a rapid hitch and feel its the last hitch I will ever buy. Built sturdy and adjustable in many ways.... Drawback is the cost.

One of these is and will be the last drawbar you ever use:

I would not use ANY of the Fastway adjustable drop drawbars.
I do not care what type of aluminum they are made of nor what their tow ratings are.
That design gives the load a really nice long lever (with a bunch of holes thru it) that is not braced on the hitch side.
Looks like a drop bar portion waiting to be yanked off.
