Robarts would be fine for that bird, but anything heavier I would buy Sierra.
There gear is a piece of art! If money was no object I would buy the Sierra.
I think I just saw a used set up for sale.

Only bad part about Sierra's, is getting Darrel to build 'em for 'ya. He can sometimes be hard to get a hold of.....

If Darrel has them on the shelf it is a quick turn. If he has to drop what he is doing and make them it may be a while..
I like my Sierras and they are very nice.. My Robarts all work good too.. I would look hard at Behotec electrics as they work exceptionally well.
