Please help me understand why so many people like frame-locks so much, and why they associate them with "hard-use" and strength. I like the frame-lock on my Ti Millie, and my Domino's lock is o.k., but I would pretty much rather have any other locking mechanism save say a poorly designed back-lock. Frame-locks, from what I understand, are not that strong relative to other locks on the market. Plus, their are so many issues that can plague frame-locks such as excessive wear, lock-rock, lock-slip, shearing, etc. I understand why makers like frame-locks, but why would an end user prefer a frame-lock over a BBL, compression lock, Axis-lock, powerlock/Triad-lock, linerlock, or well designed back-lock?
