Default Brittle Compass links.

Im in the prosess of rebuilding my Warp 360 for these season and find some of my links are brittle and crack during remooval from the balls.
The links im talking about is a type i bought from compass shop last year and an type that loocks extra beafy and they surtenly are but they crack when remooving them as the plastic in them seems brittle.
Now i see Compass shop dont sell them anymore.
Is there anyone other having the same issues?
On rebuild i use 2,5mm mikado links and exept having a slighly longer collar they are beafy enought for the job.

Those look weird. I haven't bought any links lately, but mine definitely do not look like that.

If you look around, I think you'll find some posts about compass links being brittle. I don't think it was the Warp though.

I never used the stock links, except for the tail (which I ended up replacing). Didn't like them out of the box. I think I used the quick uk or rocket city links (not 100% sure).

I didnīt like the stock links either but used them as they came with the heli, but from now on Mikado links is what im going to replace the links with as they wear out ore break.
