    Like most guys said it takes more power to pull full comp on a long bar, and it takes more power to pull chips with full comp on long bar.

    It is equal to two quarter skips. But no hops.

    It's a hybrid between full house and full comp chain.

    Nothing I need to read here.
    This terminology is not reconized other that buy some **** in sales that is confusing the situation. It's always been full house( full comp) hence 'FULL' being used already.... skip then semi skip. What is this full skip BS.
    That's not going to fly as long as I have a breath in me.

    That fad is going away quick.

    I don't care if people call a bar a blade or a sprocket a pin or an undercut a face cut
    and so on.....
    I'm passionate about that one for some reason. Lol that's how my friend @Woos31 and I met over this 'difference' Great dude!

    full skip does imply no teeth, like ye its a chains saw chain but we completely skipped the whole puttin teeth on it bit, a glorified bicycle chain if you will.

    haha..I have tears running down my check lol.. 'I don't know what it is'..it makes me crazy.

    Anyway good thing everyone has been cooler that me and good laughs and friends were had.

    Yes pretty quiet winter for me. I don't think I will be chasing the pot of gold in the north interior BC and Alberta for a few year anyway. I'll let it cycle back strong instead of cashing scraps.

    What's being going on with you and the family Brad? All good?

    I can't really remember much when I read this here thread...I do remember feeling very dizzy and things going dark.
    Then next thing I remember was waking up in hospital with my Mother looking over me holding my hand. I'm just confused.

    Haha
    This year? I can't remember if this was a ' 'skip' year or full skip this past Feb. ...Wait a minute they mean the same. No that's right, 2016 was full house? Well if its full house then why do they call it a leap year
    and not an add a day year or overtime year and the other ones short timers or 6 short a a stack? We just don't have enough names. This is abvious to me.
    This definitely has to change too.

    One of the local PNW saw shops around here that serves mostly loggers, calls skip chain (full) "high speed chain". Most 24 inch or longer is this "high speed chain" when they make it up.

    If I said 'skip' would there be any confusion as to what I'm asking for?
    Since skip came before semi skip; if someone doesn't specify semi skip then they are getting skip.

    Obviously this came about in areas where semi skip came very popular and someone called it half skip...fair enough.
    I bet most al BC coast fallers have heard of semi-skip chain but like me have never seen it in person. An additional 2,500 interior Certified fallers of BC and Alberta don't even know it exists. Ok maybe 50-100 have heard of it. and the same 50-100 out of 2500 have heard of square chisel chain. Another fun fact. Most saw shop employees in BC have never heard of square chisel chain. Not even north coast anymore. You can't buy a K &H wedge north of the middle of the province.

    I'm sure most saw shops in USA don't stock semi-skip either??? Unless they have a request for it.

    Soooo if you fall under this category as I do then clean the shelf of linguistic blend words such as semi-skip/half-skip/full-skip.

    That just leaves us with full comp or skip.

    How about that!
    And the ones remaining need to remind us others that it doesn't apply to us

    Where is George Carlin:bowdown: when you need him.
    Now that was an 'American' that made sense. He wouldn't have any of it!
