Old CLYW axles are so big that I could see the weight difference of axle materials noticeably affecting how they feel. The axles in my Chief and Glacier Express are both the black alloy (I’m assuming this is just a type of aluminum?). Has anybody tried the steel axles? Are they heavier than the alloy axles? People always mention that they like how floaty the Chief feels, so in this instance I could see people actually preferring a heavier axle.
I guess I can just buy some and find the answer out myself, but I’m curious if anybody else has tried them.
