What rockers arms should I go with for 350 roller SBC?

Hello guys I am getting ready to get a set of world product heads sportsman II heads with roller cam spring setup. The springs are 1.437 and I am going to use a Comp cam xtreme energy roller cam with 498/502 lift with 218/224 duration @ 50. I am currently using crane energizer full roller aluminum rockers on my other weekend warrior 350 chevy and have not had any problems with them but I heard that the crane rockers are only die cast aluminum. What should I get that would be a little bit stronger for my new build for daily driver without having to break the bank? I was looking at comp cams magnum chromoly roller tip rocker arms wich run around $160.00 at summitracing. Would they work ok or not? I really don't want to have to spend anymore then I have too cause I am on a tight budget cause I have to get other stuff. Would the summit full roller extrude aluminum rockers part number SUM-G6905 work good and are they better and stronger then the crane energizer vacuum die cast aluminum rocker arms? They at least have to be roller tip design. Hope someone can help on suggestions.
Thanks Eric

I second that SS Rockers are the way to go after reading in length about the clearence changes that occure with alumn. rockers. They are great for the strip since they get to cool down but in town having your clrearence change on a solid roller like mine can cause issues!

Wow, how is the quality of those. I used Comp Cam Pro Mags on mine, they are Chrome Molly, but they were $300 plus guide plates.

Have you seen them side by side to a Comp? Do they have good fit and finish? Are they made in America? Fully machined?

I've used the Comp Pro Mags also & they are very good rockers just too pricey. These from Skip are nice quality. Anything He sells he has tested + if something is wrong with a part he gets the manufacturer to change it. I've used some of the Cat brand stainless a few years back & they're good but these are much better finish & quality.
The Summit aluminum rockers I have had several of the roller tip pins that weren't pressed in all the way. I'd send them back & the ones I'd receive back would have the same problem. So I just pressed the pins in myself.
There's several different brand stainless rollers on Ebay now. They all look slightly different, mainly on the roller tip pins & fulcrums. Have to look very closely. Some have knurled pressed pins, swedged pins, plain pressed etc..
