Like anything old, they wear out. So do we. There have been some stems that have had bad designs which hastened their demise and those which were just gorilla handled to death.

The Phillip you show should be okay while the Guid might not. If you want a Golden rule, check the stems you use Frequently.

That's how I caught an SR stem before I used it for a project.
