A Berkut is good for +/- 12 Gs. Don't think you'll find any LEZs rated such. They may take such a load, but they're not rated for it.

You've also got a carbon fiber canard. Possibly the Berkut needs the 1/4 inch lift tabs.

I'm not arguing for or against heavier lift tabs. The weight in the front sure won't hurt anything. The durability, not strength, of such can be a plus also.
