Hey, I have no compunction about doing sometimes extensive modifications to my dive gear in order to get it the way I like it. If you went with a different webbing routing, you obviously identified & remidied a potential (or obvious) problem.
When I was at the last DEMA show, I noticed that everybody and their uncle were getting on the backplate bandwagon, and some were sheer junk from my point of view.
Nice pretty colors, but SHARP corners and thin material just waiting to slice up the webbing.
Personaly, I use 2000 parachute lift webbing on my harnesses, but that calls for different hardware rigging techniques due to the relative softness of the webbing.
Ya might want to toss out that plastic crap & switch to good old nuts & bolts.
Ever check out the FredT backplates on the AUL website?
