Ok...I'll bite. I can't imagine it being very strong. One good smack and that thing will crack. The aluminum ones from Utah Cycle are strong and very light.
A great item.
Well, I will admit when I'm wrong. Since my first reply, I have heard ( from talking to the fellas at work ) that Carbon is pretty strong. I would still go with aluminum though.

I went with Flatland racing. There stuff is the best IMHO (havn't seen everything out there yet, but it's better than Duvol fur shur).

I bought mine off of ebay and have seriously abused it and it hasn't cracked yet. I did drill a 1" dia hole for water drainage in the bottom. You do need to get used to the "bongo" drum effect from whatever your front tire tosses up and hits the skid plate.
I got the same 25.00 deal on e-bay 5 months ago! It's holding up very well . I trail ride only so it's had it's share of hard hits by rocks & logs, it is holding up to it all! The only negative I had, was, it was a little challenge to mount with the hardware that came with it and a lack of directions. and also there was no hole to access the oil drain bolt.
