Chrome moly worth it?

This is a discussion on Chrome moly worth it? within the Suspension and Handling forums, part of the General Help category; I'm looking to get a BMR STB. It's 30$ more for the chrome moly version. Is it worth it?...

    it's lighter for the same amount of strength as offered by the mild steel version. if you are concerned about maybe 5 lbs difference, sure.

    I don't care about weight at all... I thought chrome moly was supposed to be stronger...
