What? Where is the link or photos ? I can’t see what your asking!
I agree crap can happen with anything at anytime. Does your problem happen often, resounding no. If you replaced it with one, fine. But my forst concern would be what caused it to bend and crack and fix that first.The cable rod on my Mach1 bent and cracked causing noise I replaced it with the TAP rod and all is good much better than the stock carbon rod from PSE.
