    New straps arrived today

    Got my straps today. Its crazy how dirty the straps get. I didnt notice until my new ones showed up. Also as a little test I decided to see how much force it took to break the old strap. It didnt take as much force as I though it would. The strap broke inside the plastic piece where the string is tied together. Here are some shots of the new straps.

    Waste what money? I didnt send Nintendo anything. Those original straps get weaker and weaker the more you play. The salt from your sweat start to make the strap brittle. But you dont worry about that buddy. You save Nintendo that 39 cents and later you can buy yourself a new TV lmao!

    You dont call. You go to www.mynintendo.com and just fill in the form. Give them your serial number and address and they do the rest. Anybody that doesnt get the new straps deserve to get their TVs smashed lol. I used such little force to break my stock Wii strap. DOOOOM ON YOU!!! DOOOOM ON YOU!!!!

    Rrrright. Your hands dont sweat? I have had the wiimote slip out of my hand 4 times since I owned the system. Last night was the 4th time. And i am a pretty big guy. I hold on to the wiimote pretty tightly.

    Yes they do but they dont sweat to the point where the remote slips out. Also if youve got sweaty hands wipe them somewhere. Also i had my 7year old cousin play the wii for about 1hour and he was swinging like crazy and not once did the remote come out of his hands.
