Just don't put it on a lovely soft aluminium Hope Pro2 freehub - it'll eat it for breakfast!

Anything without an aluminium spider tends to chew into the soft free hub body quite badly. The SRAM PG980 (and above) have an alu spider.

Google it and you'll find it's a known feature/problem, just a combination best avoided :)
