Well it all depends on the process the shop doing the regrinds uses. If after they build up the lobes they heat treat the cam to get it back to the same spec hardness that an OEM cam has, then it will be just as solid, but for $250 I doubt they are heat treating the cams after welding them. However the core of the lobe being a bit softer is only really an issue for high lift cams that will be seeing high spring pressures. For a cam like a 272 or 274 it's likely not an issue. I haven't heard of any of myster-e regrind cams failing so they must be doing a good job on the regrinds.
