I started a thread about dynelites a while ago and there were definitely several folks that didn't like em' but the majority felt as I do; they're bomber. Prior to switching to them I was going through a carlisle a year, occasionally more. I've had my d-lites for 5 or 6 years, all shallow Montana rivers and not one single problem. I'd have gone through a half dozen Carlisle blades in that time, so I'd say they aren't even expensive from my perspective...probably saved my some cash. Each to his own but if I brake one of the two I have, I'll definitely be buying another, just like it.
