A mixture of seeing it in stores, playing with them in my hands and online reviews. Never rode one because they look like shit.

I just read through all of that haha

1. George at Union is THE MAN!! He's always helped me with any issues I've had over the years, and he helped hook me up for a school project I did on machining processes a few years back!
2. I've ridden every pair of forces between 2007 and 2012 and I'VE NEVER HAD TOE STRAP OR TOE RATCHET ISSUES. I honestly think it's gotta be certain types of boots or people's inability to properly adjust their straps.

Actually due to Burtons retailer agreements we can't buy Burton products from the states. But if we could we'd pay no duty (NAFTA) and only local taxes. What you might be talking about are brokerage fees, and that's something that drives me up the wall...

I've got a few good sources in Canada that offer prices similar to or as low as the lowest US prices once they all start marking down in the spring.

Paid $275 CDN for my C60 ESTs back in the day!

Sick deal. Paid 80 bucks for brand new P1's 2006 model. right from kijiji.

And yeah, that's what i meant, all fee's and products that America can ship like bataleon, which is priced lover then Canada price wise, the duty on the thing is like 100 bucks and up. Just because its made in Austria.

Yeah I keep looking for more C60s and C02s... There ARE still brand new ones kicking around. I just wish they'd start making them again. The diodes look to flimsey to be their stiffest binding now... I know they are but come on. Bring the C60 back!

C60's were the shit. So comfy, yet so responsive. Wasn't just that tho. They were an icon.
