I'm going to be running a chain bridge on a g-body for power three wheel and was wondering how durable telescopic cylinders will be. I've heard of them bending because of the thin diameter walls of the components.

Anybody run em and how durable are they? Who makes the most rigid ones? Feedback please

ive got a set from black magic and they look seriously strong the only time i can see them bending is if you 3 wheel too far i worked out we could use 18" of stroke to 3 wheel before the powerball would run out of travel and bind up apart from that they look indestuctable

i also have a set of BMH telescopics.. the smallest cylinder is almost the size of a regular cylinder I believe.

I extend mine fully at 20" for 3 wheels and haven't had a problem yet.

started putting in the Showtime Cylinders tonight.. i messed up on the fittings... i thought they were 1/2.. but they're 3/8.. and i ran out of 3/9 to #8 90's so gotta wait to finish them tomorrow.

The BMH are 3/4" port ... and I had 3/4" to #8 90's on those.. the 3/8" port might be a bit slower i guess.
