    Which rotor is more prone to flexing under load?

    The Stradic FJ, or the Sustain FG?

    Thanks.

    That depends on the size because the material changes. All of the rotors are strong enough to match the max drag capability of the reel.

    Say a 3000 and an 8000.

    The Sustain 3000FG will have less because we use a new carbon (CI4+) than the Stradic 3000FJ which uses graphite. There is no 8000 size Sustain. The Sustain 10000FG uses CI4+ and the Stradic 8000FJ uses aluminum. They all have minimal flex for the drag ratings.
