Wow!...Looks like there is really no reinforcement there at all. That does not bode well just for longevity.

I am sure they will work it out. The other two handles are fine, this one seems to have the issues. Fortunately, they are easy to replace and it doesn't affect or compromise the strength of the tool itself. Second season on the same picks...every bit as good as Grivel. I am impressed with that!  ;)

CAMP/Cassin UPDATE

Just received an email from Brett at CAMP/Cassin and he told me that R&D is aware of the problem and are now constructing the grips out of a harder plastic. He also told me that they are sending me out a new set of grips free of charge!
 
I LOVE CAMP/CASSIN!
