Fidanza Cam Gears

McNews has them and they look like a good deal for $89.00 a piece. Anybody used them or heard good about them?

I have them and will install them on Oct. 18th along with the Crane stage 1's I got in the mail yesterday. They look good (as good as any other). They don't have the "gripping" compound on the teeth like some others, but I doubt that is necissary, or makes a difference unless your belt has no teeth on it (which would suck!!).

I can't believe the price diff. The Fidanzas might be what I go with. I have never seen the Bomz Cam Gears.

Fidanzas are super cheap compared to others aren't they?...that's why I got them. I figured what's the difference? I was also told that some other well known brand (I won't mention so people won't panic because they have them) have occasionally had the adjustment screw strip or the gear itself allowing the screw to move. I personally don't see how this could happen with lock washers, but anyways, I haven't heard anything negative about Fidanzas.
BTW: there's something about BOMZ that I don't trust...maybe because it is the most abundantly shown product on cheap-bay.
