Pinks rods were good. Myself i got burned twice buying used factory performance rods from different sellers. I was able to get my money back though. Remember if you are bidding on Z rods or BB rods, good perf rods, make sure you ask the seller if he or she had them magged, check for straightness, and had the big end check for out of round condition. Lesson for me, when i build my 302 69 Z-28 Engine down the road, i will buy new Manley, Oliver, rod that is made in the USA. No off shore junk for me.
