Lemme get this straight.

You're a shop kid who can't set up all the bindings in the shop.

You're a shop kid who says they couldn't set up the bindings on a different boot from the poster's boot. So, somehow, they won't fit on his.


Original poster, I had burton hails and had no problem dialing in my contact pros, DLXs and Atlases. Nivek, please get some 11.5 Hails off of the shelf and attempt to set them up on there. okthxbbye.
Hails aren't too different in shape from Lashed. So there's that.

Why can't you get through your head that I tried every position you can put the binding in? They didn't fit the way a toe strap should no matter the position.

I know how Union wants me to set them up. I spent that long to see if I could find something better that didn't suck. Oh and with say a pair of K2 Formulas, running through ever setting would take 15 minutes per boot. Cause everything is tool less. Funny how a brand that makes boards, bindings, boots, bags, probes, shovels, splits, goggles, helmets, and more can figure out how to make a toe strap and make their baseline binding completely tool less but a brand that just makes bindings can't do either.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

No, I'm getting that, what I'm NOT getting is how I made it work on my Hails and you cannot.

Also, what's with this tool-free rant and what does that have to do with you not being able to dial in a pair of bindings? My Burtons are tool-free and, for the most part do you know the mechanics it takes to adjust them?

Yep. Same as a screwdriver.

Better question, because I guess you do have thumbs.

When the screwdriver that you pick up is in your hand, is another hand over your hand helping you use the screwdriver? If that's the case, I could see how that could take a long time. Just let them do it for you.

At no point did Gyounes mention a Salomon or K2 binding. Why are you setting up a Salomon binding to show us a pic. Why are you mentioning K2? Aren't you trying to sell the OP on Romes? Set up the rome. Are people reading for you too?

This is getting tiresome.

You're damn right it's getting tiresome.

We don't deal Romes so that's a no go. No way for it.

You bitched about it taking me forever to change things. K2 uses a ladder system which is infinitely faster than screws. That's why I brought that up. And Salomon on the Arcade and up is using a screw and ladder system that is also faster. A binding only company should be better. Every other major player is doing tool less, seems a shortfall to me.

Again somehow your sub human brain power can't comprehend that I ran through every single combination of adjustments. At some point it was exactly where the fucking engineers designed it to be. It was a sub par fit. On a couple of the most common boots on the market, it was sub par.

But I'm done arguing.

OP. Here's this to read.

"From Nose in the C3 Thread:

"Contest time. Got a pair of coveted TEAM bindings, you pick the size, for the dude that best hijacks any and all threads in the Snowboarding Forum. Yep, I said it. Not looking for anyone to be pro C3, COAL, Union or CAPiTA, just looking for educated people to get in there and drop some knowledge.

Contest runs til Monday November 12th, you PM me a list of your threads in on the 13th, winner announced on the 14th. I don't give a shit if your pro Burton, Union, CAPiTA, DWD, Airblaster, whatever, just as long as there is a bombardment of knowledge thrown in that forum, enough to rattle the cages of the establishment and get people thinking outside of the God damn box that they live in." "


So there's that. Take there bitching and arguing for what it is. Pandering for free shit.

Classy mother fuckers.

I know about that post.

PM Nose, I don't want the fucking team bindings. I just think he's right. It's time to stop some of the misinformation.

Readers at home can check the stats on my posts. This is NOT the first or even the second time we've gotten into it (maybe you don't remember because you're an internet superstar with LOTS of bindings that don't need mom's help to set up).

I come over here about every week or two. Look for stuff SnowWolf has written (unbiased imho). Someone asks about something I've ridden, I post about it to help out. When it's about Union, you say something SILLY or antiquated, I respond that you have been misinformed. Then you drop a bunch of insane stuff that makes no fucking sense under the guise of "industry knowledge" when there are a lot of people out there that are not experiencing the same problem, or have a solution to said problem that you had a hard time finding so gave up.

Post the fucking picture of your problem and relax, man.
