Do you have the new style handle yet? That, I think, is more durable.
Also, the metal base mount strip on the basket windshields is now made of a polymer and is also a lot more durable.
I upgraded my stereo windshield kit when I invented the new Rycote MS mount. I just used existing Rycote bits and put them together in a new way to change my old stereo windshield to a lyre suspension - Rycote liked it so much that they now offer it as a standard product (and it's cheaper than the old one as well as better).
