One of these is one day going into my 1950s basement rough.
Is it tough enough? I know you do not like to use the plastic ones but I see little alternative for my cast iron application.

Plastic flanges get used down here 99.9999999999999% of the time.

They get used here 99.9% of the time and get replaced a few years down the road due to breaking.

THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT TO USE NOT THE PVC TYPE, ! !
add a few more 9's to the decimal and you will have the percentage of broken ones which ARE plastic. A new cast iron flange is the proper installation, therefore the one you describe is not the "only" solution.
