    We study the uniformly weighted ensemble of force balanced configurations on a triangular isotropic compressive stress, we find that the probability distribution for single-contract forces decays faster than exponentially. This super-exponential decay persists in lattice diluted to the rigidity percolation threshold. On the other hand, for anisotropic imposed stresses, a broader tail emerges in the force ditstirubiton, becoming a pure exponential in the limit of infinite lattice size and infinitely strong anisotropy.
