Default Upgraded gearset for S3302?

I've got two S3302 servos with sheared output shafts on them. I've also ordered two TS-80's for replacement (two trucks) but would like to fix the S3302s for backup. Tower lists a gearset that is pictured and looks plastic but says metal final drive for $22.00 plus shipping of $5. That brings it up to pretty close to the cost of a new TS-80. Is there a better alternative? Thanks for any info.
Edit: I see that the full metal gear set for a Rhino is $22.00 also. That sounds way more in line than the same money for all plastic except for one gear.

Metal geared servos are more $$$$ but offer less torque. The Ts 80 servo is the biggest bang for you $. One other thing to consider is you can't put a servo saver direct on the servo with the ts 80. So that may be a problem?
