Moen Posi-Temp Shower Handle model 100710

Copy of feedback I sent to Moen tonight:

Tonight, I just replaced my Moen shower handle for the fourth time since purchasing my house in 1999. This thing is cheap, weak plastic. It does not suffer from anything more than normal usage. The shower valve is in good condition and easy to operate (No hard turning required to turn off the water completely.) Once it was broken by a 7 year old.

Do you make a metal version of this handle (Something that would fit the same valve)? I am quite sick of buying a new handle every 14 to 16 months. While clear plastic looks nice, a metal core or reinforcement where the handle connects to the valve shaft is severely needed.
Please advise me on how to take care of this permanently. Thank you.
