If it's defective, then return it.
There's really not a lot that can go wrong w/ an A/B switch.

I'm also not sure what you mean by: "Fuzzes out"

I scooped up a bunch of the discontinued remote controlled ones a few months back and haven't had a problem ,yet.

You're right, though.
Rat shack has been going downhill for decades.

They are Rat Shack.
Here's another place that's gouging on shipping.
Plus, they are a buck more than I paid.

I'm tellin ya, a remote A/B, is the best thing since bottled beer =D
If somebody offered an A/B/C/D, I'd probably buy one of those, too.
