I've noticed some paint chips on my Targa too, but who cares? They still shred hard.

sorry dont have pics of the highbacks...but do have a pic from a friends phone of the base of the bindings. This is the pic I sent to Rome just to confirm if there was an issue, and they kind of assumed they would be sending me highbacks.



Again....I am honestly not trying to make a big deal out of this. I only brought it up because I heard Rome was pulling some bindings from stores due to paint issues. Obviously if they think it warrants them pulling products, I could at least ask about it.

I did not ask Rome to send out new parts, they offered. I only emailed to confirm what I was asking. I honestly will prob. tell them to keep the highbacks as most of the chips are on the actual base. I was only wondering if this is an issue or if it was really just normal wear. My older Ride bindings held up very well in terms on paint, etc. after many days of abuse.

in the long run it's not a big deal...but i'd be somewhat dissapointed. to be considered a high quality binding, pay over $200 and to see it get beaten like that in 4 hours. poor quality if you ask me.

loving my unions (all cyan and no paint chips)

Few things here...

The car analogy was a very poor one. Of course you would return a car that had a bad paint job. A car is easily one of the biggest life investments. They cost thousands (unless you pick up a beater in which case paint won't be an issue anyway) of dollars. We are talking about a $230 pair of bindings here.

That brings us to the next issue... In the grand spectrum of bindings of this caliber, $230 is very reasonable.

Plus you guys already know how good Rome treats their customers. So if your bindings actually fail mechanically, you know they will hook you up.

This sucks... quality fade hits Rome again. While I don't think that paint chipping is a big deal, it does indicate that there are quality issues at the Chinese factory that makes these. This started last year with the United recall.

yeah i was about to pull trigger on them then went to the union contact pro. They only had the rome in white and the other was white/black. I was looking at both closely but decided on the contact.

It seems some people care more about looks than a product Who cares only time you should contact them to get them warrantied is if they break.
