This things are made by dudes in Tempe...that said they do not see mud much in the design steps. My question is this...do the pivots hold up? Is there a Northeaster on one...specifically Maine? I am humming along on a heckler and that has zero maintenence, none, zip, zero. Should I be concerned? I too am teetering btwn a BLT and ML. I understand that both have more pivots, therefore the chance of more maintenence. Just curious.

Well my ML is brand new so I can't really say much about it's pivot durability. That said I had a Switchblade for 3.5 years in New Enlgand without problems, I never even had to replace the bearings. I think you have nothing to worry about.
