Others w/retracts please chime in.
I fly off a grass field, short grass but quite a rough surface to be honest. I have used Eflite retracts in my PZ Spitfire, PZ P-47 and my Hanger 9 Corsair 50 size and they have worked great. (Had an issue with a defect on flight 4 with my Hanger 9 retract but Eflite immediately replaced the same, no cost, no questions asked.)
I KNOW that the retracts take an awefull pounding at our field and others have issues with their retracts from various makers, but I have TONS of flights on my Eflite retracts and no issues. Actually well worth the investment to me as I hate having my plane down while waiting for new parts.
My 2 cents ...
