There have been early rumors of durability problems with the rail mechanism for the Joy-Con units, so we pause for a closer look.

The rail itself, on the edge of the Switch Console, is metal and seems like it should hold up pretty well.

Its mate on the Joy-Con side is plastic, which is probably exactly what you want—any failure will most likely be in the detachable controller, which should be cheaper to repair or replace if necessary.
