They are not very precise and therefore not as effective because they must have a larger bore
to allow for any misalignment.
Also each time it is removed it may change the harmonics unless it is timed exactly in the same spot.
There are very good breaks that also have a thread protector for the times that you want
to shoot without the break. Threaded breaks can be removed with a wrench or a simple pin
slightly smaller than the ports without damage.
