Default Broken spool?

Has anyone got a photo of a spool they have broken? I've made a titanium spool for a uni project and need an example of a broken spool to justify using titanium.

Thanks

Alvin doesn't break them...he's so bad, he just chews on them for fun.

They're like chewing tobacco for the really hardcore RC guys.

Those aren't mine actually... they were just brought to my attention...

I have broken a spool or two... but not nearly as bad as these samples here...

Turbo, been a long time since we have seen you. Should make the trip up north again for some racing. Changed a bit since you last raced. Most of the nitro is gone. But some real good sedan racing and we also added oval racing. Missed our two day race we put on.

Steel or aluminium spools arent good! only if you have caps or blades on your axles! A delrin spool is much much better!
Greetings Ollie
