Run a search on "MBP" and "collets". Set the max age to about 365 days. There are some good threads on this topic. I wrestled with the decision whether to go with MBP collets and asked the board for input. Good comments from a lot of people pro and con.

If any of my closers are out of spec when I go out and check valves this morning, I may get some just because I have trouble keeping the wire collets oriented the same side up when I keep dropping them trying to get them in place ::)

I really need to spend on a clutch pack first, though ;D

good to hear no hammer for you. i'm having Guy Martin "DO" Pongo's heads. when i get heads back, they'll have huge aftermarket valves, which necessitates the use of mbp collets. stainless steel (or Ti) valves get mad at the OEM collets.
