Wish: Stronger throat

I've broken 2 throats so far, they are a bit on the fragile side, I'm wondering if a complete redesign of the hot end is needed. I'm not sure if making the throats out of stronger materials would help; fortunately the last throat I broke I was able to remove from the heat block so I only have to purchase another throat, shipping will probably be $15 though.

Have you ever checked our hotend disassembling instruction video?

If you feel too much resistance during disassembling, you can heat the hotend first to melt the filament stuck inside.
