On the field at worlds, an entire peg of the star got ripped off. I hope this isn’t another year where the game objects are faulty… It would be a lot better if they didn’t cost so much to buy! If one of them breaks and you have to glue it back together for practice, then to replace the one in your set for a competition field would be at least $80. If they break easily, then they should at least be cheaper IOM.
I don’t think Vex profits much, if at all, off their game objects. They can’t go much lower in price and still be a company. The cost is so high probably because of the funny mold shapes. I’d imagine making those wasn’t cheap. The shape is also what weakens it; the star gets really thin near the center.
We were lucky not to have any rip when we bought our mini-set of 7 stars and a cube. I think the key is how you’re supposed to assemble: Pull the tip through, don’t push! Pulling it makes it really easy and doesn’t require much force, meaning you’re not likely to tear the star.
