I am looking for some help. I had some rod tested. It had a Rockwell of 34-35.. I have some 4130 on order that I'm gonna try. Was wondering about getting some 4340 also. I am looking for good wear resistance. I am going to try and make my own tines. The shipping on the tines I am using is expensive because of the weight. Like to keep the price below 7$a ft.. using the best material I can use. Does anyone know of another rod I could try to get good wear resistance out of..
