The Comp Cams SS or Pro Magnum ones are freaking awsome if you are going to stay with a stud mount system. If your going to upgrade (But its pretty $$ if you already have all the parts for the stud system) T&D or Jesel Staft systems are top of the line and you won't be disapointed.

The Comp Cams Steel Full Rollers are way better than the Aluminum Roller Rocker and the are rebuildable to.

I've been running Scorpion rockers and they are holding up quite well. They are made very strong with reinforcement where needed. They are aluminum and stout. Basically, your answer will come from these two questions, A: How much lift do you plan on running? B: Will you run RPM's in excess of 6000 on a regular basis? If you plan on a cam profile with lifts .600 or more, I would go with steel rockers for security. If you plan on revving the engine to it's full potential all the time, I would go with a Jesel Shaft System.

I have run the 7/16 stud mounted Yella Terra rollers since 1999 and are great, but pretty dear. The next set i buy will be the same.

I have used two brands in the past with great results. Mine are for a 460, but the rockers are the same as a 351C.

I used a set of Harland Sharp for several years. Finally a coupel fo the rollers tips didn't quite as smooth as I thought they should. ( I'm very picky about this sort of stuff). I had been using them in my 557 with close to 800 lbs open spring pressure.

I called and then sent them back to HS. They rebuilt them free of charge. Talk about fantastic customer service!

While they were being rebuilt I bought a set of Trick Flow rockers from Summit. I needed a set ASAP so as not to miss a race. The Trick Flows are built by Crane. They are the same rocker as the Crane Gold, with the only diff being that they are a different color and and $50 less. They are working great so far.

I tried Harland Sharp and the geometry was of so bad. When I corrected the geometry with an adjustable push rod, the pushrod rubbed the hole in the head. I sent them back and bought Crower from KV's recommendation and they worked great. They are vey nice.
