I have ignored "G" which represents the "modulus of elasticity" or the "constant of steel".

The the purpose of "torsion" stiffness, any difference in various steels would represent no difference in the outcome. It's all about the diameter!

As for the steel's long range integrity to overcome change, there may be a better steel composition when compared to another. My reply only addressed the torsional stiffness question.

Hey Bob,

How about what they're made out of? UUC claims to use higher quality steel, would that increase stiffness as well, or just not wear out as quickly?
