Would it really be that hard? I don't think so. I'm not buying any "it's time consuming" or "it's too difficult" argument. Every other review for a board or binding says something like "these things are seriously light." Weight is a factor just like length, width or sidecut radius. Put a number behind it!

These guys do a bunch of bicycles in minutes. A snowboard company could easily do it.

I bet most of this forum knows how easy it is to weigh out a dime bag... get a bigger scale and boom, snowboards are no problem.

I'll take a 157 sack please...
