DROP TEST - OK first major mishap with the Darwin. I was late getting to the airport in Helsinki today and after a three hour drive I jump out of the rental and the Darwin was in my lap. Sort of like the slow motion thing as I watched it fly and tumble before hitting the ground. It was in the opened postion and hit hard arm first. Well anyone worried about the brass connector can rest easy since this think took a brutal hit and was not phased in the least. The Ikev V2 drip carto however met its maker and recieved a proper burial in a snowbank. It hit hard enough to cleanly fracture the threaded portion off at the carto body. So the people posting in other threads that the arm is flimsy can KMA.
