A fuse that looks like this


AND

A fuse that looks like this:


OTHER THEN the shape (assuming they are sanme ohm's).

the flat thin ones are available in larger current ratings (above 80 amps), and are considered to be more reliable than the tube style, which some people have had problems with. I personally have had no issues with the tube style, but since it's usually only available in sizes up to 60 amps (sometimes 80 amps), it is not large enough for the main fuse. I do use them in my distro block though.

Its because the link is so small that it doesnt offer much resistance to current.

Also Fuse's and resistors are not the same thing.

ohm is a measure of resistence
amp is a measure of current
