I wouldn't worry about it:
1) Even at the very end it's far more arm-friendly than any poly, and with the Ki 5 it's not a problem for most people.
2) By the time it gets stiff enough for you to notice it, an average multi like NXT (which costs much more) would have already broken by then. Assuming you're not as bad a shanker as me, PPA normally last a long time. You can cut it if you don't like it, and you've still gotten your money's worth.
