If you are going to buy a pre-made blind, I would go with the avery quick-set. I have one on my boat and it works great. Although if the boat didn't already have the avery blind on it when I bought it, I would have went with a home-made conduit blind.

X2. PVC is a poor choice for blind material

Banded has some really good videos showing the assembly and setup process for that blind. I had watched the video out of curiosity to see how their product worked. I don't know if I am a fan of how their roof works. I haven't used it and haven't played with one, but based on the videos I see several negatives to how it functions.
I had an Avery blind on my boat when I fist bought it. It was the older style and Avery has made many changes since. I believe the changes were for the better. If you are comfortable building a blind and comfortable doing the material on the Banded blind yourself, I cannot see why you wouldn't be comfortable bending your own out of 3/4" EMT conduit. Ultimately I got rid of the Avery blind and built a homemade conduit blind to fit my boat. It fits my boat to a T. Much lower profile, because that is what I was after. Not only better profile, but lighter weight and faster setup too.
Take some time and scroll through the "show me your boat" sticky at the top of this forum. You will see all kinds of builds and blinds for different areas. There are so many ideas that you can learn from to build your own and end up saving more than $200.
