H beam is stronger usually, depends on brand, but has less clearence. The I beam is usually a little weaker than h beam but more clearence. also in lowerbudget area the i beams are lighter usually also.
if you have the cash a good h beam would be the way to go.

I've heard that the Eagle H beam is bad JuJu. Do a search and you might decide to stick with the I beams.

I have heard not that great things about all eagle stuff anymore. I do have a set of older eagle i beam rods in my motor and have had NO problems with it though. eljojo is right, check into any brand before you buy them unless they are olivar or carrillo then they are good as gold, and cost about as much.
