I am a licensed structural engineer with a lot of experience using various titanium alloys in the aerospace industry. I do not see any valid reason to use titanium pawls. High grade steels have equal or better strength and ductility at the high hardness range required. Titanium’s lowwer density will reduce the inertia of pawls. But, it will also increase the tendency to skip under high loads.
