Axiom Streamliner Rack

I'm looking for an inexpensive rack that will provide additional heel clearance for my son's bike.
We tried a standard rack and he got heel strike with his size 13's.
I know a Jannd expedition would work, but I'd rather not spend 80.00 delivered, because I'm not sure if he is going to like touring.
Looking at the Axiom Streamliner Sport Tour and Road Rack models.
Can anyone comment on either of these ?
It's going on an Iron Horse Adventure which has rack mounts and eyelets.

My wife and I both use streamline racks (for extended touring ) lots of clearance for feet and seem to hold up ok, Both racks have several thousand kms on them, loaded all the time. Just check the fittings every 500 kms or so. The reason we put them on was for the clearance required for disc brakes.

The one with one mounting strut, don't buy it. The aluminum strut broke, and I only commute with 20lbs.
