Really? What happened? What were they poor at?
The first ever test they appeard in (ride mag), they won....
Trouble with the plating causing a bad batch and the next time was the wrong type of attack There's some threads on here about it. I didn't know that.

If all the manufacturers bring their products with them, then nobody can be accused of tampering the products prior to test.Time to put this one to bed me thinks....What say you?

Read my mutterings:
And in the interests of fairness, the 2nd test I mentioned (which was the wrong type of attack) caused Almax to complain to the Press complaints comission and had their complaint upheld.
Didn't the 2nd test involve a sledgehammer and an anvil ?
Not many thieves drag an anvil around with them AFAIK, hence why Almax were a bit miffed...
I don't think they would be bothered which tools they used, other than the ones which do the job quickest?
I was always under the impression that they would fit in your inside pocket

Corus...a fine English company:On April 2 2007, Corus became a subsidiary of Tata Steel. More information about Tata steel is available at www.tatasteel.com.Ta ta. PS. No doubt all the 'Buy British' advocates want British chains to protect their British bikes. PMSL.

Corus was't 'British', Anglo-Dutch maybe, but not British. Doesn't alter the fact that they (BSC, UES, Corus, TaTa, take your pick over the last 25 years) own a number of steel manufacturing sites that are in the UK, producing steel from the start point of iron ore. Whether any of it makes it's way into Almax chains, I don't know. I just don't see the relevancy of who owns a steel plant located in the UK to the discussion about how effective a security product is.
The relevancy is the marketing point of Almax, i.e. a totally British product with British steel.
You'd have thought 'no steal' would be the best advertising for any security company. But hey, what do I know? :burnout:
All Immobiliser Chains are triple tempered, BRITISH steel, enhanced with carbon, manganese and boron, case hardened with 3 separate processes and zinc plated
My point is that, Zanx has tested the Pragmasis chain and places it second to the Almax because it failed to standup to a sledgehammer attack,,, erm.... but so did the Almax
Point being that you don't need freeze spray to break the Pragmasis, you DO need it for the Almax and something as squishy as the Oxford Nemesis doesn't resond to freeze spray at all. Personally I'd expect a chain to withstand more than one spank with a sledgehammer before shattering but don't read too much into this test anyway, like I said, it was ideal and not particularly realistic conditions. If I could replicate it on a kerb, I'd be more worried. Over to the dogs.
