    This is almost certainly a case of "if you have to ask" and in that case I'd say the answer is "suck." Look into other platforms.
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929

    I wouldn't say they suck, they are just weak for the platform. How the hell someone broke reverse is beyond me....most people that upgrade their gears leave 5th and reverse alone.
