Re: Shackle Flip
i just realized what you're talking about... the pure vertical force on the shackle, NOT the force that the spring puts on it as it flexes. yes that is correct, stock is tension, flip is compression. in other words, if we put some huge impossible force on the shackle it would now collapse rather than rip in half, but so many things would break before the shackle that its not worth mentioning.
