Topic - Exfoliating DMM krabs

bullybones - on 12 Apr 2013
Just noticed that some of my krabs (DMM Pro Wires) have started to shed their outer layer in a flaky exfoliation especially around the nose. Pretty minor so far, but still.

I saw the same kind of erosion, but more severe, on some DMM krabs a couple of decades ago (!), and assumed it was due to sea cliff use. I'd subsequently steered clear of them until I bought this batch 2-3 years ago, during which time I've hardly been near a sea cliff.

Normally I reckon on at at least 5-6 years' use for krabs unless they are obviously worn or damaged, and I haven't seen this sort of erosion with any other makes. There's no hope of me finding a receipt, and I haven't contacted DMM - maybe I should.

In the meantime, what do folk reckon, are they still safe to use for a while yet, or should I retire them early?
