Default JESEL SHAFT ROCKERS SBC

Im trying to decide on either jesel orTD shaft rockers on my sbc. Im not familiar much with TD but i know Jesel has great rep.. my past motors did not have a shaft system..but ive read up and it seems the way to go for reliability - valve geometry -and Hp.
So if you have TD or jesel what are your opinions?

thanks in advance
Keith

I would make sure that the Jesel's have the single piece shafts and not the 3-piece cheaper version. The Sportsman version for a BBC that I purchased in a trade had the 3-piece which break before bending a push rod. At the time, I thought that all Jesel's were equal. NOT!

Jesel does make 3 different styles I've ran all 3 with no issues but as long as you can wing it get the pro series.

Don't know about Jesel but I'm pretty sure T&D has spring oilers which is nice.

could be wrong.
