I just picked up a pair of brand new Firefly bindings from the Salvation army thrift store. They were tagged @ $4 when I got to the counter the girl said hows $3, then she said it was half price day.
So I ended up paying $1.50 no tax for brand new bindings.
I've always thought Firefly was a shitty low end brand, they are one of the cheapest boards @ most of the stores around here.
I've never ridden anything from Firefly before.
What is your guys take on this company?
They actually don't look too bad, I've had a shit tonne of bindings over the years & these look to be better than @ least half of the higher end ones I've had.
So I went to their web site Bindings - Snb Hardgoods Technologies - FIREFLY.eu
& it looks like the newer stuff they are coming out with is designed by Fastec
That is the same company that designed the Gnu Agro binding.
GNU Snowboards » Agro
On myfastec.com they seem to have designed quite a few bindings for different company's.
They have their name on Gnu, Volkl, Roxy, Salomon, Nitro, Nidecker, Sp & FTWO
I'd imagine that everyone of these brands gets their shit made in China, probably all in the same factory.
So if they are all designed by myfastec.com & probably made @ the same place.
Are they really as shitty as I thought, or are these pretty much the same bindings as all the other brands listed above, just with minor differences to maintain individual identity?
Cause if they are, brand new ones are @ least half the price of all the above mentioned ones.
Who has ridden firefly gear?
Did it hold up or did you have any problems with it?
