I use to make them for JG in the 90's If you do I would make should that they come or you hard anodize them first. Not sure if even i would use them as a daily driver. They were very light though

Dont know who makes bad ones. Although companies that copy other quality parts and mass produces them in third world countries with absolutely no quality control, I would stay away from. The price savings isnt worth it. You get what you pay for. Engle Cams has been in business since 1941. Thats who made mine for a few years.

Even though I made alot of money selling the aluminium retainers, I would go with Ti ones. One less thing to worry about while going down the track. Especially if its a final round and you are out in front.

The weight diff is less than ounces, more like grams. Never really dynoed them to see a difference. The Ti's might weigh a couple grams more. But if you buy a set of conical springs and Ti retainers there is a little more weight saving there. The retainers are very small,
