Rome Warranty

Does anyone have any experience with Rome and their binding warranties?

I bought a pair of Rome United Bindings this season for my board and after only four days on the slopes there is a crack in the right one. I showed the guy at the rental place there and he pretty much said they were done for and it was just a matter of time before it broke completely.

Now here's my question: Will Rome give me new bindings? Or does this fall under some clause that they can get out of?

thanks redlude97. That makes me feel a lot better already regarding my chances of getting it fixed/replaced...

although, I'm not too happy about getting sold something that has flaws, at least they're trying to fix the problem.

I think the "now" constitutes the '09 models onward. Starting in that year, I've read on other forums, complaints of Rome's quality - nothing too serious just paint peeling, ladders breaking, adjusters coming loose, etc. Prior to this model year, all reviews were nothing but excellent.

I have a pair of '09 Targas and they have held up better than my POS Burton's and so-so quality Flows that I've managed to keep together.

I own a pair of 08 Targas and, of all the bindings I've had, these by far are the best. Nevertheless, there still have been more complaints about Rome's bindings starting from the 09 model onwards than for any model year prior to.
