Broken Hyperlite Eyelet

I tend to stay away from injected eyelets. When players request the Hyperlite skates I recommend they order custom and get standard eyelets unless they are entirely sold on the injected eyelets. 

Aside from the injected on the 2015 1X skate (which was a manufacturing defect yet I never saw it being a widespread issue) the injected facing has been durable.  The few broken ones that I came across where all the result of too big a skate resulting in over cranking to get them tight.  Had them on MX3, 1S, and 2S Pro and was a fan.  Missing them on my Ultrasonics.  My concern is with the design of the HyperLite facing, specifically the cut outs at the top potentially being a weak spot over time.  

Pretty sure Bauer had a slew of skaters using them as prototypes long before they came to market last year.  Whether or not they encountered any issues at all we will never know. I have a few who have gotten them had issues with the tongue.
