Roller tip rockers are a waist of money. If you have the geometry set up correctly, the rocker arm tip doesn't travel across the valve tip. All the friction is in the ball/cup area. I would just run a new set of stock stamped steel rockers if you run a small cam. If you really want roller rockers, I actually had good luck with the cheap aluminum ones on my daily driver with a large hydraulic flat tappet cam.
