No equivocating about it. Deformation axle failures are still typically a matter of one side of the piece skating and blowing off cam lobe material and usually due to the device rotating to the load. The inward collapse of the axle with both sets of cams are well-placed and in-line with the load in solid rock is rare and I've had more stems and axles simply part company in those instances.

P.S. It's why I tend to use Loweballs in place of small cams or backing them up.
