Each of the stacks is unique and has its own features. If integrity stack is a fresh and modern design for business sites and other professional sites then renew stack offers a clean design and icon stack comes with minimum design. Apart from this, the developers of the theme made it possible for the users to customize the themes so that no two themes will look identical.
The best $60 you will ever spend
Even though the premium WordPress theme comes with numerous features it is nothing but a child’s play to use it. If you are one of the many people who thinks that the theme comes with a tricky setup then you are highly mistaken. The only thing that could be a little time consuming is creating your own designs. However, this is just a little price you have to pay for this impeccable theme. You can avoid this if you are happy using one of the stacks that have been provided.
Even though the stacks are great I would personally recommend you to exploit the features of the theme and design something on your own.

X is a breakthrough in the WordPress theme and is a winner. Over all it brings a lot on the table and is definitely a safe bet.
