Best servo arm for Hitec 7245MH

I have always used the DuBro heavy duty servo arms for 6s and smaller setups. I have seen many posts that say the DuBro arms develop slop over time. Is there a better alternative? Thanks!

You want arms that fit the Hitec "C1" spline.

These Hitec OEM Super-Duty arms are good:

The hybrid arms shown below come with the HS-7245MH. The bolts are 2.5mm.

I have never had any problems with my Dubro super duty arms i order from servo city. I have over 200 flights on each set with no slop. perhaps someone just got a bad set.

I remember people discussing this issue before, I think in the 64" MXS thread. I'm pretty sure Doc had the issue of slop in his arms and he went with aluminum arms from a different company. I don't remember the details of it all, but from what I remember it wasn't just one person getting a bad set, multiple people reported the issue.
