No way around that. The idea of splitting the board review section up so that it isn't overwhelmed by one brand is a great idea, just like it was with the 2014 preview thread. That's all I'll say for now, bitch at me if you want, you wont get a response.
So how does it work with the bindings you get to review on the Angry Snowboarder site? Is getting product in that instance considered a "sponsored review"? Genuinely interested, not out to troll or cause more angst on what is perceived corporate bribery vs remaing true to core values etc.
