The Harland Sharp is a good rocker for the money. Stay away from the vacuum cast Roller rockers (crane energizer, Earson etc) As far as aluminum RR's being weaker I run a Crane wide body gold rocker on my dragster and I have 305# of spring pressure on the seat and 815# open pressure and I might kill one a year, the bearings break but I have never broken a body. The stainless Comp Cams are nice but they are heavy and the valve train is where you need to save weight the most. I would buy a long slot stamped steel rocker so you don't have any stud interference problems. Also I would not run a RR without a guide plate and the machine work is going to run quite a bit for a stock head.
