Come and see and hear our composite clapper at Worcester Cathedral. 6 peals
and over 150,000 changes and it sounds so much better too. We'd be happy to
make one up out of a broken SG then you can see and hear for yourself. 

That many failures show that the design is at fault - not the material.

Personal experience suggests that you lower the limit to around 20cwt.  
The two tenors at Coventry Cathedral, c24 & 34cwt have had about 11 or 
12 failures between them since the bells were put in during 1987.  None 
of the bells that are less than a ton have had a single failure.

Taylors have been very good in terms of their response to these
