Yes. Taylor sockets are a pain on the front bells of light sixes and
eights too. David Potter usues stays with metal strips up the sides,
which bend if hit hard but are a bit more resilient than ordinary stays.
The basic problem is that Taylor headstocks for smaller (under 4½ cwt or
so) bells have under-engineered stay sockets.
