Chromolly vs. Aluminum Flywheels

Whattup, I have heard some things here and there about these two types of flywheels. Such as Aluminum doesn't last as long. Is this true? Anyone that has any input on this please share. Ups and downs of each, which is better and why, all is welcome. Thanks.

JUN flywheels are 200% stronger than stock flywheels. The JUN flywheel is made from a one piece forging using the special grade of steel known as chromoly. By forging a chromoly flywheel, JUN eliminated unnecessary weight making the turning inertia smaller. The JUN flywheels will give a better response and can be easily noticed once installed. This is a must have when installing a new clutch

with the search i have, i guess its true that Chromoly is much better than Aluminum...
