Why are tension springs considered better than extension ones?
First, they are the newer of the two types, so it's only natural for them to be of a higher quality. Torsion springs are stronger and more flexible than their extension based counterparts, which is the main reason they are preferred. They are also the safer option of the two, as in case they break, due to the fact they are coiled around a torsion shaft, they are far less likely to go flying and hurting someone.
