You are entitled to your opinion- but it is based on what? Nada- not one bit of empirical (first hand) knowledge. So while you are entitled to this viewpoint, I respectfully submit that it is useless- AFA having any meaningful content- IMO.

There are quite a few first hand reports of various problems w/these heads- Skip even mentions some of them. So it's not like the heads are only being black flagged because they're Chinese. They got BF'ed because there were problems w/them, period.

Now, if you can find out what the heat treat specs are, or even what material the guides and seats are made from, that'd be something.
