a question about the secondary

a have tried this new system with two microtraxions ( one attached to a chestsling) many variations on this scenario and the question is relevant on most ascenders . : If the primary one is not working for example stays open then you will stop on the lower one ( secondary) but still hanging in the highest carabiner because thats the shortest attachment to your harness . so when I use two microtraxions the first will (in this scenario) malfunction and go down the rope for cirka 30 cm and then come to an abrubt end on top of the other one. the lower carabiner will still be unloaded. I will survive ! but how good will this force be on the microtraxions and theirs sideplates .( or whatever ascender you recommend. Do you understand the question !? Thanks / martin
