Default Seat springs

Looking at fitting a solo seat to my hardtail project, Thinking of using the normal twin springs, but concerned at their load capacity as I weight in at over 19 stone - anyone any experience of these or alternatives

i sell them and mounted at the very rear of the seat i can bottom out the 3" ones on big bumps/potholes, i weigh 16 stone. but they do soak up lesser bumps
i have some 5" ones brand new you can have for 12.50 inc shipping
