You think those would be less likely to stripout?

They pretty much stop the stripping problem... A little expensive but worth it.

its the best option

Are these indeed stainless steel? The info provided on their site does not specify.

These are stainless steel, if you look at the Lynx Website, it describes the material.

Keep in mind also, loctite does not cure as quickly with stainless steel as it does in steel. You will want to allow it cure for a longer period of time prior to use. If you're like me and do quick "field" repairs, this may be problematic (Unless you use Loctite Primer).

In all honesty, align has rectified the stripping problem sometime in early 2011 I believe. The new 700 bolts are much deeper than the old ones.

Ensure you have your driver full inserted into the hex, and you won't strip out the screws.

FACT!!
Stainless steel is softer than Carbon steel , the new screws align have are stronger , the depth of the hex in the bolt and the quality of the driver being used is the problem , not the material being used for the screws

The Lynx bolts don't strip but they will break after some use. I've probably had 5 or 6 break in two years.
