Helpful Expert Reply:

The weight of the Flash Solid Steel HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5625 that you referenced is 37 lbs, and the weight of the Curt # C45902 is 36 lbs. So in that regard they are essentially the same. They really are quite a bit alike in most ways. Same capacity at 20,000 lbs, both fit 2-1/2 inch hitches, both can do same amount of drop at 6 inches, both are highly reviewed by our customers, and both have very similar prices.

I'd say the edge goes to the Curt though since it has two hitch pin holes which gives you a bit more flexibility in how far out the ball mount will stick from the hitch if you look at just the two kits as-is. The other factor that might sway you to the Fastway is that it's made in the USA and the Curt isn't. Both have lock kits available for them which are very similar too. For the Curt you'd want the # C23556 and the Fastway # FA86-00-4225.
