In iceland you would be consitered mad if you brought a subject like that up in a conversation.

We belive that coils are more realible, longer flex, better control of the flex (easy ro modify it) and over all smoother.  ad coils are cheaper than leafs over here.

but the leafs are only bolted on in 2 places so they parhbs are cheaper to maintain?
