But then your treefalling experience is rather limited.I've never seen a thin hinge hold better than a thick one.
Compared to those who log for a living.
Too thick a hinge will simply break instead of flexing.
A thinner one will flex and hold for longer.
All according to species, of course, in some, the fibers are so brittle that thin or thick makes no difference.
The triple hinge was invented to overcome the tendency of a too thick hinge to break, because of lack of flexibility.
Now you can go on one of your:"I'm the greatest, I've done things that no-one else in the World has" rants again, but that won't change the facts.
