Re: rod choice's

Depends how long you want to wait. Hypermax rods in stock ready to ship. Crower is usually a few weeks out.

Re: rod choice's

I went with the crowers. No wait time here. This is just another reason to buy from SWAMPS. They had ALL of the hard to find parts IN stock and ready to ship. Why you would buy elsewhere is still a mystery to me.

Re: rod choice's

Wipeout FTW... That guy has built 2000HP Tractor pulling engines for a long F'n time. No doubt his rods are the best out there.

I may get flamed for this, But I personally like the fact that they are a little heavier than the others.
