blades and rope wrap

I bought a set of cataract shafts with razor blades 8 months ago. One blade is starting to delam and a rope failed, came apart in middle of wrap. This seems awfully quick to be seeing these issues. Cataract says that there is built in edge protection but it sure doesn't look like it. Any similar issues, was it warranty issue, any other thoughts?

Does Cataract do their own rope wraps or did the dealer?

Did the top or bottom of the wrap spin (to loosen the center), or did it just slip down the shaft? Pull the rope around the shaft until it's tight and reglue.

Im not sure if it was factory or dealer wrap. The rope hasn't loosened it actually broke in the middle of it. Still tight but it catches when feathering.

So after my second razor I've switched back to the dynalites. NRS as usual treated me great and im happy to have confidence back in my blades.
