A pilot in our area crashed twice because of broken ball links..it could have been his build technique or maybe the quality of the links.I do a great decending funnel!

Be careful using metal tools with ball links...

Little damage by doing a scratch is enough to ball link to fail.

Or it could have been "dumb thumbs" causing the crash and thus breaking the links upon impact.....

SAB has some bad links a year or two ago and worked to get them out of circulation. Maybe some were missed. Mine have been bullet proof on many Goblins since they came out years ago, some of the better links I have used.Tom
