The title kind of says it all. Just ordered a new Stern pin and was getting ready to place a Marco order for some unrelated pin parts. Was wondering if I need to also buy a set of metal leg protectors for my new purchase? Thanks in advance.

They have plastic leg protectors.

Last I saw they had switched from metal to plastic.....and that has been some time ago. I would be really surprised if they switched back to metal as I never heard of any issues with the plastic.

I just looked at a pic on the JP2 thread and it looks like plastic it is.

I recall people saying Stern switched to plastic ones sometime during the original MET run.

I'm just glad they have them. I use the metal ones on all my B / W restores. They work the best.
