I snapped one of my Crank Brothers Mallets today, tried some times, but don't like them. I want to go back to the mallets with the pins, but I want to make sure they have the improved spindles.
Anyone know? Thanks in advance...

I've seen CB have re-vamped their 5050 'flats', I'm not sure if all of their (great) pedals have been given the same treatment though.

They changed the spindle on the second version, which is the version after these:
But the spindles are not much stronger. The newest 3rd gen version looks to be the same spindle. Until they change the design of the binding wings, the spindle will always be thin (where mine broke). The binding limits the diameter.
I love the function, but these pedals are NOT strong enough. None of the versions.
