Use the 10's and be done with it.I have'nt had much luck with 7's on dual springs at high rev's.If weights a concern, use titanium retainers,they'll last forever.

Personally I would not use std. 7's or 10's. Use the Super 7's. The retainers are available in both titanium and steel, and so are the keepers.
