I've heard that the deformation of material when a rod is in play resembles and oval and a metal check must be loosely toleranced to avoid creating a stress fracture in the rod.

This leads me to take no chances with my lack of experience and go for a rubber one, call me chicken all you want!

Thanks for all the great info, I will pick a couple up and try them on for size.
