Hi VS, once again thanks.... I guess I wasnt too clear in the post. I meant using power pads on the bottom grommets in the throat area, not on the bottom most grommet where the CAP ends.
Becos 2 out of 3 breakages I got are on the first 2 mains of the grommets on the throat. Although this latest one broke on the last main just where the CAP ends (and just before the mains go through the bottom throat grommet), the main just beside the one that snapped looks like it is also going to rupture too (this one goes through the bottom grommet on the throat)
But of cos I do agree with you too that, these can be just cases of bad guts (which I hope really)
*hope I make more sense now... was never good in writing
