    What are most of you guys running out there-doubles or triples? It seems to me that if you had 2 springs with the same pressure, 1 dual,the other triple, that the triple would last longer do to having less tension per winding.

    Supposedly the duals have a higher fatigue frequency meaning the frequency (Rpm) at which they fatigue is brought to a higher rpm range that we would not normally see, at least that is what Noel Manton told me a while back. The tripples I am told will still hold the valve up if one of the springs breaks. This is a subject of interest to me as well.
