The handle is definitely made of cheap metal, but the screw/hanger seem to be fine. I disassembled the handle on the one screw I have, and put some blue loctite on the threads and reassembled it. That way you don't have to overtighten the bolt in order to keep the thing together. I've only used the screw once, so I can't really say how it will hold up, but it went in nicely, and the handle worked as well as the handles on my BD express screws. I talked to a guy at IME who used 'em, and he said that as long as you loctite the handles together, they work fine...he had a couple and used 'em all last year....we'll see as I get more of a chance to use the one I have.
