Rome Targa's

So I just received my Targa's today and went to put them on my board when I noticed that the rubber on one of the bottoms was not right. On the heel side of one the rubber is aprox 1/4 inch to long and on the adjacent side it's missing 1/4 inch. My question is should I just cut the rubber or send them back to get another pair? Or take advantage on Sun and Sports and pick up a pair of DMCC's?

heh wonder how that happened. Email/call Rome's CS and they'll more than likely help you out real well. I usually hate customer service, but Rome has a good rep in this regard.

I always used the rubber/foam because it's designed to dampen the ride as well as help protect the board from cracking during heavy flexing (read that somewhere). I guess you could take the foam off, but the base plate is designed to be used with foam and you may run into some warranty hassles if anything breaks

There's a breaking-in period for the base foam. It won't always be that thick.

You can take it off, but you'll likely damage your topsheet.

Can you just flip the piece of foam over until Rome gets you squared away? And don't worry, they will fix the problem...

I could but I would have to cut all the rubber studs that go into the binding to help keep the pad stationary.

The pad / foam is kinda thick and makes it hard to screw the bindings in at first. I usually run the first couple screws without washers then after I get the other two with washers I Unscrew the two without washers and place washers in them. Not sure if that's the issue with this years romes but last years I had that issue
