I am not sure how Hitec will rate them, but from my experience they are much stronger than Nylon, but I doubt stronger than metal. The advantage they do have, is that ofter about 100hrs of use in my plane, the Karbonite gears are still as tight as the day I bought them. Any metal gear servos I have purchased show significant slop after this amount of time.

The Karbonite gears are between the Nylon and Metal gears. They are about 4 times stronger than nylon but not nearly as strong as metal. The great thing about them is that they have extremely high wear resistance so that after a few hundred flights, they will be as tight as when they were first bought.
