We have not had any issues with the badges since the model was introduced. It is a high quality medallion, like you see in many other models. As with any other similar medallions, they can show wear over time. I have a had a set that has been banged around for a while and had not issues or evidence of damage. If you remove them you will see the injection points for the polymer. We have extra medallions and can send replacements if necessary. We keep a few extras because in rare cases some may come out. We have sold thousands of these heads/clubs and only a couple of instances where a medallion came out. I personally have not heard anyone, until now, use the word flimsy or mention unusual or unexpected wear.
