    The "problem", even with heavier bodies like BBP/DM/EMCE, is in the too-tight stringing.
    Agreed. If they could get the stringing of the body right, I would never have to replace them. And my restringing efforts have not been very successful.

    Don't tell me what I know. To me the bodies are fine, the issue I have is 30 bucks for oversized heads on some figures and poor costume execution on others. Couldn't care less about your weight obsession. I've had breakage with the Castaway bodies and screws strip out after one rescrewing, so not so perfect either like you let on.

    I've used O Rings with success. All I keep is the shoulder metal hook and the hip pins. The rings are about the size of a dime.

    There is no comparison to the S-type and majority of people who have them know the greater difference between the two.

    No rubber bands to deal with!
    Better poseability!
    Better plastic! (which makes a heavier figure. Yes,the feel (weight) of a figure matters as it doesn't feel cheap)
    Costumes fit better on them vs the smaller FTC bodies
    Extra hands (fists, grip hands) VS. the same standard usual "cup" hand that we almost get with every FTC figure.

    I have never had a breakage with S-types.I customize a lot too So,Not sure what you are doing that you're breaking them.

    The screws won't strip if you are using the proper screw driver.

    And nothing is perfect! but there is no comparison trying to compare these bodies to each other
