Where they G10 or micarta or both?
I remember there being a thread about this, but I also remember Jerry saying that the tubes can take massive pressure. But I have to say that I have thrown a few of my SHBM's (slotted bolt) thousands of times with no ill effect. But I also remember throwing my tube SHBM with no ill effect either.
I’m not a fan of g10, so they were all micarta.
It is also possible that the scales on the shbm are more protected from impact by the handle shape than other models. The fusion handle was one that was particularly prone to shifting when thrown or batonned.
