A-5 hopper weak spot?

Someone told me that the front flat area of the hopper has been known to bust when hit directly. He suggested to add some cushioning to it. Is this known to be possible? What have you done to cushion it? Thanks.

MAYBE if it gets hit a harder shelled ball or a very cold ball - I would not worry. If you like, use some industrial grade tape to absorb and evenly distribute the impact.

Cool, I plan on getting the ricochet eventually. I'll just leave it as is and if it breaks then I guess that's that. Thanks folks.
