Default Stud girdles a good idea?

Iím curious how many people here use stud girdles. It seems like cheap reinforcement for a delicate valvetrain. My own build is mild 10:1cr, 525EFI cam that may see 6k from time to time. While itís out it seems like a good idea to put them on?

I've always run them on the higher performance engines, particularly if I'm running solid rollers. The ramp speed is more significant placing a higher lateral load on the stud, and I've always noticed (real or perceived) that the valve lash stayed the same longer with girdles. You have so much money in them already, it's just cheap insurance as you said. Beside.....if some is good, more is better!

If you have to start fresh, studs, rocker arms, guide plates and girdles. Yella Terra pedestal mount rockers are the way to go without going full shaft rockers. $800-$1000 Saw them at PRI a few years ago and will be switching to later, probably for this years builds.
