You know the more you dig into this, the more you learn that everything has weaknesses, there are no perfect solutions, everything seems to come up as "it depends, how and where are you going to cruise" seems to be a big determining factor
I've got 3 different... a fully encapsulated, big big big... hunka lead, and cast iron swing... The all have their pros and cons... but the encapsulated worries me the least... both catastrophic nightmare and maintenance wise...
