Very poor construction.
What didn't you like about the El Hefe's?
Probably the color.

I don't care at all for the aluminum base plates ride uses, but I just found it interesting that he specifically commented on the build quality. I never had any build quality issues out of Ride bindings.

If you rode sixty days that board will be fine. Just use a stiff binding for good edge to edge control. Camber boards are fun and fast, you just need to maintain control of your movements.

It wasn't even the build quality that bothered me the most. It was the design flaws. It was like I got a prototype binding that they are going to release two years later.

When I went back to the store, I looked at the display model to make sure they mine weren't just lemons. The display had the same design over sights.

Thanks! I rode a hot knife 4 days last year and I was fine on it. It is apparently even more aggressive than the Ripsaw. Most of my days last year were on a LIB TRS. So this should be a step more aggressive.

Funny, because I had the exact same thoughts about the Union Factories I bought last year. I think I owned them for less than 24 hours before they went back.

I'm generally a Flux or Now guy, but I will say that even though I'm not a fan overall, Burton makes some damn fine bindings too. I still have an old pair of Triads that get kicked around from board to board. There's always some board laying around here that's wearing them. Pretty sure they're on my Charlie Slasher right now.

That is funny. I can't even imagine that. At least with my factories I had 6 levels of forward lean. And I could actually use them if I wanted to. Like I said before, the Ride El here, anything more than the 2nd setting, it would have enough gap to fit between the highback and heel loop.

It was one of the products where I shook my head and said "how did anybody ever release this??"

I wish I still had pictures of all these flaws that I had to take for warranty purposes.

I rode the Factories for 50+ times last year and they were perfect asides from cosmetic stuff. I'm keeping this year for a bird man I bought for 50% off.

If you like unions, the chargers are also epic and stiff.
