Did you call in and ask if you could get it replaced? I've never had anything like that happen with my bands.

Did you have them set up in a way that they would be against a sharp corner? We've had our bands for over two years and one of our reds and one of our purples are just now starting to tear a little bit.

They must have caught on something as generally they last for quite sometime. How did you have them set up?

I meant think like quater inch thick then the surface is 4x8 to fit underneath the rack.

My guess is that you either pinched it on something or dropped a plate on the band.

i been using their mini and green bands for a year and no problems here. i choke them underneath the power rack and over the bar ends. however, i can tell they are losing tension overtime.

let us know how the turnout goes with elitefts. hopefully they'll send out a replacement.
