I was going to wait until they reply, but there a company so...... I have an ebs valve drive, loved it for years. But i recently started having problems with it. After looking over it i couldnt find the problem. I gave it to a good tech buddy, who couldnt figure out why it started working again. So after a while it started ****ing up again. Turns out the tube socket they used was plastic and the pieces that grab the pins had bent open to the point where it lost connection. So i can get better sockets, but why should i have to? These are supposed to be high end gear, i mean 300 bucks and it still has crap components.
