Yeah, it looks like it. Way more limited size options though last time I looked.

Does anyone know if the Lexjet Sunset HD Pro Wrap is the same as the BC EasyWrappe?

Funny you should ask. I was just on the phone with my LexJet rep and I told him that I was using the IG Wrap (EasyWrappe) system. He said that they had something comparable, but it wasn't from IG Wrap. Here are some links that he sent me:

Interesting. Similar concept but clearly different design. I love how they supply a push pin :) And doesn't look like they use a jig like the IG Wrap does.

I don't see much difference in the design.  Pretty much a copy, including the size, groove, corner wedge and staples holding the corners. 

For those doing only a few, the fact you buy a single kit for each stretch is probably a nice thing, since with the others you have to buy several bars of each size, resulting in enough to do 4 stretches is a minimum.  If doing a lot, the ability to mix and match sizes is nice for the IGWrap bars.  These appear to be a little cheaper, although BC and Liberty discount these aggressively most of the time. 

Personally I like the jig.  seems to make the placement of the bars to achieve the correct stretch much more accurate. When placing the bars freeform like this I can see problems because you misplace one by a fraction.

Several of the tips in the video might be helpful for those using any of these systems (such as the push pin to locate corners).

I agree, there's very little difference in the design. Really it looks like they've added another line of tape across the back (unnecessary because you can just staple gun it, which they do in the video anyway), and screws to hold the corner braces in.

I do like using the pin to align and then draw lines to get the jig (or no-jig) placement of the bars perfectly aligned for the mirrored edge.

The difference between the systems are likely just enough to avoid patent infringment lawsuits from IG Wrap :)

It looks like Lexjet now has the bars in boxes of 8 by length, instead of just pre-sized kits.
