I'll chime in on this thread only to share my experience with the Aramith ball case as well as many others....
I have "a few" ball cases and have never had an issue. Upon closer inspection of each case I have after running across this thread, I discovered all of the handles are attached through the entire case sidewall and seem nearly bullet-proof. I do use both the shoulder strap and carrying handle routinely and have not noticed any degradation in either the attachment points or the handle itself.
Carry on ----- so to speak
