sorry to hear you lost your foil. Apart from what the others said, I would not say that foilmount is something forbidden to be used. But I just have never seen the price to function value, as every shaper will add you solid tracks for that price without loosing the old foilless ability of your board ...
And there has already been somebody here telling the same story that foilmount comes off with time... just can't find the topic.
But everybody should know that there are many foil connecting parts that are able to break, just see pictures here on the end
So a well dimensioned safety line should be a must.
I use a covered 500 daN line that is conneced to backstrap that way that even when the fist fundament of strap breakes the secound will keep it.

I even had a stainless wire cable as a redundancy - broke it clean off....
Therefore this part of your story sounds more interesting for the others to learn from if our safey lines are dimensioned cortectly. I also heard from people breaking mount and safety line but because it was obviosly too weak.
So do you have a picture of your broken stainless steel wire?
Thanks for sharing
