black widow cranks with miyata axle

Anyone had any experience with this set up?  I'm wondering how long it'll
stand up to 4ft drops and 6ft gaps.

(Bear in mind I weigh 200 pounds and am fairly hard core).

I've tried Shimano Deore LX cranks with not much success.  They don't bend but
they come loose at the axle because the square deforms.

Not very long with you on it.  Last summer, doing 30" drops, the Suzue
hub lasted me 6 weeks.  The Black Widows only lasted a month before I
had to Loc-Tite them.  (I used them a couple months after that with the
Loc-tite in them, then I put them in the closet cuz I got a Profile
axle)
