With what I did, I think that prety much any metal board of similar size could/would brake with any binding system. Except maybe old style Tinkler plate?
I wouldn't recommend any plate system (at least the ones I tried) to anyone below advanced stage.
Doubtfull fame... I kinda remember someone saying about multiple broken boards, just not as much detailed report as mine?
Don't hear much of the core cracking when I bend it. Maybe just top. It did bend a bit, though.
