    Bunny I will be honest I have kicked out GRP rods out of 4 or 5 motors the last two years. I can't really say the cause was the same for all 5 but it's been an ugly couple years.

    We use the GRPs and have zero complaints. Buzz the motor 10,400 and keep enough fuel in it. Change them out every 22 to 25 runs.

    I have used GRP rods for years, never broke one other than once when the bolts were not torqued:eek:. we change them 18 to 20 runs.

    Grp

    I'm not knocking anyone else, but I have run GRP for a number of years, and was a GRP customer before they advertised here.
