In the tens of thousands of modules using these pins we ship every year, none have ever come back with a pin ripped off the PCB. That's because these devices are pushed and pulled vertically in sockets or breadboards, side or twisting forces are just not going to happen.Ah - I didn't realize they were soldered to both sides. So that means you have to be sure to get the right size pin for your thickness of PCB. It does however mean that they'll have some strength - still a fraction of that that you'd get with a through hole pin, however.
The pins are fragile enough to break after a couple of bending cycles, but in that there is no difference from normal DIP leads.
It saves a bit of space (especially with more than 2 layers) and some FR4, and won't destroy an IC socket like normal square pins would.
