Max-on - I'd question the reason behind it. Yes, you get some increased breaking strength and decreased stretch and save some weight, but from what I understand - you pay A LOT for that. For safety (inspection) reasons I think I'd pick it over rod, but only if I was putting together an offshore racer and had a reason to pay the extra money.
