Are you using the shear bolts that come from Switchblade or are you using aftermarket. I know the brass shear bolts from the factory are set to break at a certain tension assuming those are the bolts you are talking about.

I broke a ram and found the main problem was trailering and it being stressed in the wrong direction. I haven't trailered with it since.

A weekend of riding in chop will bend my shear bolt. I probably replace mine every 2 weeks worth of boating. I have some aftermarket bolts but since they don't bend as easy it makes me believe they are a stronger brass alloy and I'd rather be safe using the expensive ones from SB.

Pics if it's something else.

I have been thinking of getting a switchblade, but it seems like such a hassle and if they are breaking even worse. I was wondering if you thought it makes that much difference to have one or not to.
