you must really realllllly baby your gear. shit happens, why is why these products are offered with a warranty to begin with. and do you know BEFORE you buy something that it isn't going to break? You must really throw a fit when you need to take a car in for service. lol..what a stupid fucking post.
yeah, considering a six sigma designation (pretty much the highest mark you can get that basically says your company has all its shit together) still allows room for manufacturing defects (3.4 per million, or .00034%). and since snowboard manufacturers typically don't have the wherewithal to get to this designation, i'm willing to bet dollars to doughnuts that their defect rates are significantly higher.
