    That's disappointing. I was planning on running with the HolidayCoro topper this year, and all my strips are from Boscoyo. I already purchased them, I really, really hope I don't see the warping and breaking on my HC topper.

    Next time I will buy somewhere else just to be safe.

    My topper from HC is going on 4 years now, no sign of deterioration.

    I still use the full welded/metal tree toppers from Christmaslightshow.com.

    Fantastic product.
    Mine is over 10 years old and still like new.

    I used the HC topper with no issues for 4 years. Has held up well to all types of weather and wind. Have made purchases from both. All great experiences.

    I purchased a mega tree from HC this past year and had zero issues. We are in Dallas and with the strong winds whipping down our street, I thought for sure I would have issues, but none. The topper seems very well made. With that said, I just received 500' of Boscoyo strips and these strips are thicker and more rigid than HC's. I have not tested if the Boscoyo strips will work with the HC topper, but it might be a tight fit given the difference in thickness (you definitely will not be able to fold the strip over for mounting like you would with HC strips). I tried to get to my mega tree to check the fit, but it is too well packed away. sorry.

    Yes, you can fold the Boscoyo strips over and zip tie them for the topper. That's exactly what I did - Boscoyo strips and the HC Qt2 Topper. The strips fit nice and tight with zip ties and don't move around. My topper cracked between the slots for the strips. I only had 16 strips in it with 50 pixels per string. That's not a lot of weight. I assume the temperature and/or UV rays affected it more than the weight. I'll look through my photos to see if I have one of the topper. The ring in the base also cracked and the pole went through the bottom of the base. I'll won't be getting a topper made of plastic again.

    I for one use Boscoyo strips they created them. I donít use the HC topper but recommend the one from Boscoyo, all steel. The also have the parts needed to make the asp pole.

    I had mine lasered out of 1/4 plate steel, along with a 270 pixel star for $200. I dont think either of these will ever fail. Was too expensive to ship a 36" star to Alaska. I actually saved money. If anyone wants the star .dxf file I have it available. It is not exactly like the HC star, the pixels do not curve, they are evenly spaced. That said, I do not notice a difference, and the metal star will last far longer than cheap coro.
