Im not sure what you mean by the disk? Are you referring to the trigger bar or retractor cable platform?
Either way, or even no matter what the cable and stem should not separate below the units strength rating, if it did I would not expect the pictures to look like these. I would expect to see something broken, really broken. I would not expect to see something that looks like there never was any contact area to solder or braze.
Ill use my (few) old Aliens, they were made years ago, probably by Dave himself, and I assume he knew how to assemble them.
Hmm, perhaps I shouldnt, he didnt know anymore about QC then than he does now!
Hmm, hmm, and Ive never tested/fallen on mine.
Guess thats why I didnt think to long when I bought the whole set of C-3s.
Ok Dawn and others, how many do you have!
Me? I think only three.
