Possible defects with #4 and #5 DMM Dragons - 02/16/11 05:00 AM

Looks like this made the rounds, but passing it along just in case... Looks like there may be a problem with #4 and #5 DMM Dragons WRT cracks in the head assembly similar to the earlier recall on the #6 Dragons. The issue was discovered by the folks at MGear, who are working with DMM and their NA distributor to root out the source of the problem.

Is the problem isolated to just those sizes 4,5,6?

I was gonna add a few to my rack this year. Guess I'll wait and see.

As somebody who works in manufacturing I'm glad they don't have them made in China.

IIRC the post on the DMM site said that the problem part was only used on the 4 / 5 / 6 and has be superseded with a new design that doesn't have the cracking problem. I think the difference was milled vs forged, but best bet is to go to their recall page and take a look at the pics.
