I don't know if its possible or not but I would like to do some sort of pull test on a purple alien I aquired recently. It's dated 12/05 but has no dimple. The previous owner has weighted it with no problems and told me he was completely confident that it would hold a fall. How can I test it at home or is there somewhere out there I can send it for proper testing to ensure that the brazing is legit? Would you climb above it:) thanks JoshuaJones

Hard bounce test with aiders or a funkness device?

This has been discussed a number of times if you search for it.

In short, you're going to need some tequila.
