Hmmm they are really new and there's not alot out there as far as how much they will take,some say don't run them as instead of bending like the standard rods do they break so be careful.My opinion is you are ok except for the 12-1 compression,that's too much for any stock style rod at that rpm.IMHO

new, i have been using them since end of 98, i would recomend scat i beams or even a prowler etc, they are stronger and the same wt... and cheaper than, pm rods.

new pms are 200,on up bushed

scat or import from comp products are 190 bushed to 220.. and way stronger.
