Hi Guys, i was just checking over my 250 ealier and noticed the tail belt had some slight fraying on the edge in one place, so i thought time for a new one. When i opened a new pack the brand new one had exactly the same fraying :thumbdown:. Has anyone had this problem?

Not sure what to do now, should i change it or leave it :arggg:

I have noticed some places do a kevlar upgraded belt for the 250, is this any better?

(I'm pretty sure the stock belts ARE kevlar reinforced.) A few short stray fibers of kevlar peeked out of my belt since I got it. It's run just fine ever since. I haven't put 100 flights on it, but I'm sure it's over 50. It's easy to cause them by using a tool to pull the belt over the pulley. When I saw it, it was pretty short but I trimmed it down flush so it couldn't snag anything. Now, if you're seeing any belt teeth getting loose or missing, that's when I'd worry.

Mine also frayed after just a few flights, I went to the Kevlar belt and it's great, over 50 flights and no fraying at all. I give the kevlar two thumbs up!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

Yeah, my standard one was fraying pretty bad after around 30 flights. (yellow string stuff coming out the sides) i replaced it with the kevlar one and it seems pretty good! Only done 15 or so flights on it, but it seems great.

I have heard some bad news about the standard align belt with it fraying like this so i thought to go straight to the after market one...

I replaced my original stock belt at 100 flights and it still looked brand new. I had some of the kevlar belts on hand but I put another stock belt on because the original was doing so good!

yep...i'm not sure what everyone is complaining about. my stock belt is 60-70 flights old and looks absolutely brand new.
