Not if you strike them properly.

Ever seen Steve Jordan's 22" Paperthin?

I was just joking around - I love Paiste, but some their cymbals are less durable than other companies...

Based on what research?

Any cymbal from any manufacturer can crack if struck hard enough at an angle not conducive to cymbal playing. Thinner cymbals will generally break before heavier ones. To suggest that Paiste's cymbals break more than other manufacturers, with no data to back such a statement, is not only unfair, but wrong.

Paiste wouldn't have lasted this long if their cymbals were notorious for breaking easily.

As for my own data, I've broken many Zildjians and even more Sabians, but have never broken a Paiste. Does that mean that Paiste's cymbals break less?

Just my opinion, but aren't 602's thin already? What's the point of a thinner version? I was hoping to hear of Paiste introducing a medium thin version of the 602 with all that same buttery, beautiful, sound and feel. Course, I can't really afford 'em anyway! Am I venting?! ;)
