you'd see a bigger trail of issues.
Considering the torture test done on Real Sword on Youtube, I think the coddling might be an issue specific with the RS owners you know.
None of the problems reported in those RS reviews seems particularly serious or incorrectable. They're all fairly easy and/or cheap fixes, certainly easier than upgrading a TM to full wood and metal and hoping the aftermarket parts fits without issue.
