H422 power limit higher?  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have had two H422 dipoles. The first packed up not long after I bought it and eventually the dealer provided a new one. The new one lasted a couple of years but recently packed up, displaying high SWR on 15-40m, suggesting a 15m trap had blown. I am rarely on the air and when I am it's only for a quick contest-style contact and rarely do I run QRO.

I see that recent advertising talks of a "new" design and high power balun supplied. Before I purchase a replkacement does anyone know if this is true? For example, are the traps now beefier? 
Product is in production.
