Wow! Great photo log of your test.
Nice job getting rid of that flake! Glad no one pulled it off in a fall before.

The "cheap" bolt from Lowe's didn't fail but it also got pretty mangled along with the old hanger leftover from the Puoux rebolting efforts. Of course, it experienced a straight out pull, one that is not typical in a climbing fall unless on an overhanging route.
