Rain alone won't mess up the heads. They're plastic, and therefore not affected by moisture. (The shells do get messed up in the rain, though, so always be careful of that)

What side of the head looks like it's separating? Do you play in the proper playing zones? Are your mallets torn up from hitting too many rims?

These questions are all important for this reason: If you're playing in the correct part of the head, and that's not the part of the head that's separating, and your mallets are perfect because you never hit rims, then you have a head that's defective.

If, however, your mallets are torn up and you're not playing in the correct zones, and the part of the head that's getting torn up is a place where a lot of wild strokes are landing, then you've probably put a small puncture in your head and there's air getting in there.

How old is the head?
