    Has anyone used one of Fusions bobtail mainspring housings? I'd love to hear your thoughts and feedback on them. Also, do the bobtail MSH's use the same mainspring and internals as a standard MSH? Or do they require something special?

    I have and would use an Ed Brown MSH over the Fusion.

    The Fusion tends to be a bit meatier and more of a strait cut instead of a gentle radius. The Brown will be easier to fit and blend.

    I thought Ed Brown has a patent or trade mark or copy right or whatever you call it on the bobtail main spring housing?
