Which slip on is durable?

When I bought my 700 it already had an FMF slip on. I think it is either a power core 4 or a Q4. The label had burned off and I cannot tell which it is. This muffler uses a billet aluminum mount that is rivetted to the can. I have ridden this bike twice at hatfield McCoy in WV. On both trips the rivets on the mount have worked loose. I put new rivets on after it happened the first time and they last 2 and a half days and became loose again. So I can either weld this mount in place or buy a more durable slip on. I have had no less than 15 fmf exhausts over the years on bikes and atvs and I have never had one fail. I have owned 2 HMF slip ons and those were good also and way back in the day I had several supertrapps with no failures. Keep in mind I ride on rocky, muddy rough terrain and tend to be a little bit heavy on the throttle lever so not exactly the easiest on equipment.
