Again....aside from the paint issue I love my union bindings. I bought and took back 3 different pairs before I got these. I have kept these ones. Obviously I like them. But I am not blind to every single issue. It is a good product, but it could be improved upon. I think any normal adult with a fully functioning brain would be open to any improvements that could be made on a product.
Please send a couple photos of your chipped paint to this address: email@example.com
Feel free to PM me with any questions or concerns.
