Martec Prop Cotter Pins

I've got a martec folder on my S2. Last year I replaced the pins - getting new monel pins from martec (at a cost of $10...).

Question, do these props really need monel pins v. stainless? Anyone out there using stainless cotter pins on their martec? Monel pins are impossible to find and i don't really want to spend yet another $10 on new pins.

I haul every year so would put in new stainless pins annually.

Thx.
