I read an article about that somewhere a little while back. If two rods weight the same an I-beam rod will be stronger than an H-beam rod. If you notice, the vast majority of very high quaility race rods, Oliver, Crower, etc, are I-beam style. Apparently though, most of the non full race style rods, Eagle, SCAT, etc, are purchased by the average public gearhead, and it seems that anything that looks a lot like a factory rod doesn't sell well to these consumers. The H-beam rods look a lot more trick, and that's what people want, therefore it's what the rod builders have to build.
