Who is using new forged I Beam axles?

Seeing if anybody that is using a Speedway, So-Cal or Lucky 7 forged
dropped drilled chrome axle have any opinions on them. Without starting a pissing match, I am also considering SB axle. I know it is cast. Not interested in hearing how your buddy's friends axle broke. I have been reviewing all the forums and do not see much documentation of a major problem. The folks who have been selling cast axles for MANY years are still in business. Not looking to see unfounded company bashing. Thanks

I don't know or care who makes em, I'd choose a forging over a casting any day.

Original axles look better and are stronger...and in abundance if you know where to look.

That said the Speedway and SoCal's are offshore stuff...CE still makes USA forged axles.

forged axles

I am using a Chassis Engineering Forged axle. My buddy got it for me in Iowa. It was a second, It had a ding in the edge of the beam, I took a steel rod and put a ding to match on the other side. I do not use cast axles.
