Unless you rock crawl...
Shackles move and can 'give' with more flexibility than the 'fangs'. Whack the fangs on a rock and you can bend them (one guess as to how I know). Otherwise, I agree with the rest. For most normal trails, the Calmini 5" will give you a decent ride. It also allows more control of the front axle than a standard SPOA (without a panhard).
