I know this is "against the rules" but the TLR wings are the only ones I am running from now on. I've ran the Pro-Line, Jcon and the stock wings and the TLR ones deff last the longest. I've ran mine 3 or 4 practice/race days and I don't even have one crack in my wing and it still looks like new.

think the TLR wing has a dip in the front that does not allow the spacer to go into the middle position. Which is what I run.

The thickest "stock" wing I've seen came with my Proline Phantom body. It was THICK....unfortunately I also found it to be THE ugliest wing on the market, and refused to run them.

I like the JC wings, fairly thick. BIG thing to remember is making sure you have nice round edges on all your cuts. You can have the thickest wing out there but if you have sharp 90deg corner cuts, it's gonna crack.

Also, a friend painted his wing with plastic dip and it seemed to last a really long time. But it does add weight as well.
sorry, I almost blew Coke out my nose when I read that

The proline wing was over 20g for me and didnt last much longer than other wings. It started to fracture, kinda like glass because of how ridged it is. If I want to run a 20G plus wing, I would just get the sworkz. Best way to make a wing last longer, is to crash less

He paints his bodies with it too. Kinda heavy, but he can peel it out and change the color if he likes. Although, I dont want to do that, I will say his bodies last longer than I would assume. To each their own.

Now that's just crazy talk. We all know it's the wings fault, not the nut behind the wheel.

I find the Pro-Line Stabilizer works best for me.

I like the proline trifecta wing.
I have been running mine for a long time now, close to 5 months. And it still holdes up.

I like the JC wings, but it breaks to easy i feel.
