Holy shit, thats unbelievable! I'm definitely not the type to abuse that a companies trust like that. But I really hope they stock the bindings I end up buying because hands down a company with that kind of customer service deserves mu business.

Lol ok that settles it, I'm not buying anywhere else.

Thanks bro you have been a huge help.


I think I was just ultimately convinced to purchase the SL's. I in my best fit of OCD was reading my 9,000th review of all 3 bindings and was stopped dead in my tracks by " the good ride's" review of these guys, check out the review if your curious. The SL' review can be found Here
Ride Maestro Here
Raiden Phantom Here

Now I don't know if they are a little biased but they definitely do review of all products. By lengths of reviews alone it seams they didn't give the Phantom's or he Maestro's he time of day. But their content of both of those review reflects what many of you have said so that leads me to believe they are pretty accurate. I think after all this I am gonna go with the Union SL's. The only thing that they don't' have that the more expensive Maestro's have is the canting, and I'm not sure that worth the extra 30 bucks. Not to mention If i buy the SL's from dogfunk now they may come down again in a month which I will definitely jump on!
