Default Worth it to upgrade my rockers to 10mm bolts?

Doing more research for my build, and didn’t find anything in a search of anyone doing this. I know Tony Mamo likes to do this mod on the Yella Terra’s. Anyone done this to any other style rockers?

What’s the setup? Spring rate? Rpm? What rocker you running currently?

Thoughts are that if the current springs aren’t enough to control that valve, I’d like to go heavier, and be prepared for that.

Was also reading some some old posts where Martin Smallwood belived the trend to make more power with less exhaust lift was more due to valvetrain flexing.
