Default Question about the Oak Park base plates

I was reading about these non-metallic base plates can start to "dish" over time from having a heavy router hanging from it continuously. Is this something to look out for with the material OP uses? Should I remove my router from the table when not in use to remove the stress on the base plate?

I haven't had any problem with mine yet. They are guaranteed not to sag so based on that if mine ever does I expect I will be getting a replacement from them.

As thick as OP's plates are and considering the material they are made of, there shouldn't ever be a problem of them sagging.

I don't know how long Corey has had his but, I'm going on 2yrs without any problems.
