He has either changed the design or changed his mind on the subject in the year since we spoke.

Your plane, your choice.  I wouldn't run this design gear with steel springs, that's my choice.

He added a cross bar that ties in the two sides, parallel to the belly. Early models didn't have that, and some hard landings caused the side frame to buckle in. The new bar considerably strengthens the frame against side loads (now it is much like the High Country gear, for example).  I think that answers many of the concerns posted. We shall see.
