Mine is in pieces again so it was easy. Do you have a fish scale?
Bathroom scales may be close enough.

I don't think it is the mold. I think it is the material, layup, and finally, those two holes they drilled for the gratuitous cuffs. I don't think it is coincidence that it broke at the holes. I hope the new one does not have the holes.

This reminds me of my arm. I broke, not fractured, my left humerus and had a plate and screws put in for repair. Several years later, my left shoulder was still hurting from the same accident and I went to the Dr. I asked about removing the plate and screws. He said if I was still participating in active sports and fell, it would probably break at the top or bottom of the plate or where the screws were. I decided to have the plate and screws removed.

I may just use silicone to put them on next time.
