Default Pull Pull versus pushrod on rudder.

Hi
Just wondering what the benifits are of useing a pull pull system on the rudder versus a pushrod. I'm talking in the sport type aircraft, 40, 60, 91 etc.

Thanks fellow fliers

Very simple to set up.
No large masses vibrating around in flight.

When a cable is pulled, there is no chance of any lost motion due to pushrod flexing. (Assuming you are using good quality no stretch cable). A pushrod is subject to some flexing if not done just right. A good cable set up is lighter, too. Centering should be more accurate as the control surface is pulled back to neutral.
