Snare broke centre plate issue

I'm in the UK and have the centre plate inside the snare on my strike pro kit is completely broken in half.
The kit is only 6 months old and as much as I love it(although I have replaced the HI Hats for Jobeky ones) I'm really dissapointed about the snare. Is this issue (and it is a well documented issue for quite a few strike users) being resolved?
I have spoke to UK support but am told they won't have any replacement snares for 4 weeks, which i expect might take much longer than that.
Am i really expected to go that amount of time without a major part of my kit? and when i eventually recieve a replacement should I expect that to break too?
