Salesman told me it would support the weight of a bear.

What size hail do you have?!?!?

Welcome to this forum.

No one in the UK has reported problems with hail, though one or two have had cracked ones.

Now if you're in Australia then I'd say Australian hail WOULD be a problem.

They are very strong.You will not have any issues with them.They did have(Australia) a few issues with the Nissan Maxima roofs quite a while back.But all resolved quite awhile back.
