Actually...the first paint chip was discovered right out of the box. I have been assured that what is happening with mine does not sound like normal wear and tear. If mine is an abnormal case then I have nothing bad to say about the union bindings at all.
Long story short...I care.
Never said anything about you Jennifer.
If you and sudden death read my original post, I was talking about a customer that came in angry that his son's jibstick setup had paint chips on the toe ratchet of his Union bindings.
I didn't mention though that the same customer's kid's board had a dinged up base which further proves he was jibbing.
And contacting brands usually nets satisfactory results. Union is on here taking care of people already.
Sorry if it seemed like I was directing this towards you specifically. I was doing no such thing.
