So... does any one have the link to the thread with the bad Union rep? I'm interested in seeing this.

This is a tasty burger.

Does history mean shit can't happen, nope and that's why I have back up bindings and a warranty.
Just took my Machines out for a rip last weekend - very impressed with their performance so far, I'm sure you'll enjoy! They seem very well built and I have zero concerns about the airbags popping. They're in a thick casing that short of sticking a nail into it isn't likely to break.

Just search for "Union Hijack" that pretty much sums it up.

No need to start it over, but seeing what happened may help people make informed decisions in the future.

Oh crap my bad!
Err... so would you go to war against Semame Street? Sounds like you REALLY don't like it! I bet people get them confused all the time and it annoys you kind of like how I annoyed my Physics teacher when I compared him to Morgan Freeman once...he pretty much flipped out!

This is a tasty burger.

Lol no no make love not war!!! Really though I stopped watching Sesame Street when I was a kid, but the Muppet show is one of those shows that translates well into adulthood. It's hilarious to go back at watch some of the episodes with the guests that were big at the time, like Elton John with his big ass glasses! Classic stuff...

First I saw Union's How to Set Up Your Union Bindings videoo on YouTube, and the Union guy was just being an absolute douche. He had a sort of 'shut up, Union is the only good binding brand you idiot' tone and just gave me bad vibes. He actually reminded me of a highschool bully
Second thing is on their site, it says "everything in-house... with no outsourcing". I get the box... big black bold text reads: DESIGNED IN ITALY. MADE IN CHINA. Yeah, no outsourcing my a**!
I then try contacting them on their site but when I click 'send' a box appears that says something like "We don't like robots. Fill out the verification box." But of course there's no freaking image with the verification text!
Sure- my Union bindings perform flawlessly, look cool, haven't had any problems and should last a lifetime. But honestly I'd feel happier with bindings with a 1 year warranty, knowing that the guys who made them are NICE, HAPPY, SOCIAL people who respect their customers more than, well, their bindings! (what else?)
Oh well, I'm happy with mine anyway. As long as they really don't break, they're still awesome.

Just to clear things up... We have 3 offices: Colico Italy, Seattle Wa, and Shenzhen China.

Italy is design, engineering, and production.
USA is marketing and graphic design.
China is production, assembly and packaging.

There is zero outsourcing. It's nice and happy around here too man. Maybe a little too much

Call Milo and ask for Josh or Cal. 1.877.504.1500 They run Raiden and are awesome dudes.

This baseplate thing was probably just a freak accident. They will take care of you.

Cheers.
