I am interested in the steel CVD's, but when I looked them up, they cost $60.00!!! What makes these little steel rods so special? Are they really worth $60 bucks?

I am still an RC noob, so I am trying to figure out the advantages of CVD's, and get your opinion on the starting price.

Thanks,

Nate.
