Have you contacted C3 about it? They'll send you a replacement baseplate.

I've had a pair of Union bindings for 2 seasons now and have never had a problem the square logo coming off. You have a legitimate argument- I would also be pissed to pay $200 for a pair of bindings just to have a piece come off on day 1.

it's not right, and it is not a "common" problem. I've never even heard of this issue before. You make sure you do everything you can to get this problem fixed. Call C3 via phone- that's the fastest way to get it sorted out.

And don't listen to Mr. Extremo over there. He's just an absolute Union fanboy to the point where if there's a problem (even if Union admits it), he'll blame the person who owns the bindings and accuse them of using them incorrectly or some other bullshit. He's done this on countless other threads.

I'm a fan of Union myself, but I don't try to praise them as being completely flawless. There have definitely been some problems with them now and in the past that Union has also acknowledged, and they're fixing all of them for next season.

Hope it works out for you!

This is a tasty burger.

I shit you not. 12 days tops. That's why I was SO pissed about it. And I'm honestly not that great a rider that these should be so beat to shit. I don't even jib really

Are you serious?

Who are you to judge how much fun someone is having? You seriously go to the mountain and judge others on their gear, then have the audacity to call them tools?

You, along with the 13 year old kids hurling insults off the lift, are a cancer to snowboarding, and are the main reason so many shy away from the sport.

Fuck off.

Me having fun snowboarding is riding, not trying to LOOK LIKE a "pro snowboarder" who can't snowboard.

Wondering why you got soo offended, now i know why you tool. Looked at your post and yes, you definitely fall in this group. HA!

Bunch of crybabies!

Haha... my next question was if you were hammering the jibs lately. That is crazy.

What are you talking about dickhead. We have 3 people who own forces saying they've all had the same thing happen. And I'm one of them. Not common? Are you seriously retarded? Does it need to happen to every fucking binding for you to qualify it as "common". Why don't you stay out of it until you have something useful to add.
