Fake Bindings??

Hey Guys


Tomorrow I'm meeting with a guy that is selling me 2011 burton cartel bindings for 170....Now have people come across fake bindings before or heard of anything like this and if so whats the best way I could go about making sure these products are actually legit?

Thanks

Fake bindings? Really? Bindings aren't made out of gold and diamonds... they're mostly plastic and aluminium/steel. The cost to make a "fake" would rival making a real one.

The only thing you should be worried about is that they are actually 2011 Burton Cartels and not old Cartels or some other Burton binding. If you know what they look like, there is no way you can get ripped off.

and BTW, are they used? Here's some for $160 new Burton Men's Cartel Binding (2011) - Sport Chalet

Seeing as a binding mold costs 100,000 bucks I doubt you'll ever find a 'fake' binding.

The only thing you'll find is misrepresentation of years and model types. As long as you know what they look like, it won't be a fake.

... so yeah, what the two above me said.
