Well last night was the final night for my Benny L bars. I've had them since March of 2013 and they have been across the United states 4 times, lots of progression has been made on these guys for me! Feel wise the bars are a 10/10! thats why im warrantying them for another set. The final trick was a 180 fakie to feeble hard 180 out.

I've seen so many of these bars break in the same spot now, it would defo put me off buying them.

I'm not dissing Fit but they would sketch me out.

I've had no problems with my animal big 4s after 2 years of daily use, don't think I've ever seen a pair broke either.

if they gave you a good run I'd buy another pair instead of warrantying them, but thats just me...

Rise: 8.85"
Width: 28.25"
Backsweep: 10°
Upsweep: 5°
Crossbar Height: 6.25"
Crossbar Width: 10.25"

I've only heard of one other set besides mine breaking.
They are the only bar with the exact geo i want.
Already got me new set, the shop i work at had them in stock so i got the stores and the store gets my warranty set.

Weird. haha i saw this happen to a few other pairs of four piecers like that. Geez. The only ones I haven't seen that happen to YET was some Big fours, Bone Deth Deadmans, and Daily Grind ones, and possibly the Black flags. Those stranger ones did that, and a few others i can't remember the names of at the moment.

Everything breaks at some point, but considering the other bars with that formation also break there, maybe the chromoly used in those tubes should be much thicker there because it is obviously a weak point.

Just a theory... "Four piece break because they're stiffer but 2 piece flex and bend instead."

Correct me if i'm wrong.

They don't necessarily need to be thicker... the lower tube needs to extend out, and the upper tubes need to be welded on top of it. Much stronger design.

this seems like a reasonable assumption
bending is a response to stress and forces above what the part or material can handle, and so is cracking. without the ability to react to too much stress by bending , it causes the tubing or welds to crack
glass is extremely rigid (like 4pc bars), so when it gets dropped it cracks/shatters, but will not bend under normal circumstances
