S&S Supreme rods weight compared to S&S heavy duty


Posts: 9
Building a 106" Evo stroker with big bore, not sure weather to go S&S Supreme connecting rods or the S&S heavy duty rods,

question is,

1, how much heavier are the S&S Supreme rods in weight?
2, are the heavy duty rods up to the Job?
3, Should I just use the Supreme rods even if they are heavier?

thanks in advance

Ok Fellas,

I got a set of Supreme rods and a set of heavy duty rods and weighed them, without listing the individual weights the difference was about 105 grams.

the break down was approx 45 grams on the wrist pin ends and appprox60 grams on the Crank Pin ends.

the wrist pin ends was the biggest concern and its not really heavy enough form me to be worried about the extra weight.

Glad you got it figured out. I asked S&S and still haven't heard.

Jon my boss says.
"S&S heavy duty rods are a better choice for his setup. The weight between the two is almost the same. The Supremes are better used for a XL application."
