These particular speed strips are Tuff Products brand. They are only 1.5 years old and the only abusive thing I did to them was storing them under the back seat of my crew cab this whole summer (north Alabama). Not a big deal as I usually use moonclips, but sometimes, depending on what I am wearing, a speed strip does hide slightly easier than a moonclip. Has anyone seen similar? Is there a better quality speed strip I should consider?
