Default Ccrcrcrack, Burton bindings split in half!

A few hours ago my Burton Custom baseplate suddenly split in half from toe to heel including the mounting disk. I just got this new less than two months ago.

Is this a common issue with Customs. I would rather not risk it again if it will do the same thing with the replacement.

Including the disc? Thats 2 independent components that both failed at the same time. Must have been a lot of force put on them!

I have nothing but good things to say about Burton's customer service.

My issues was smaller that yours (broken toe buckle), but I bet if you Email them they will help you out. info@burton.com

I sent some pics of my broken buckle and they were awesome about it and helped me out.

I cracked my Customs baseplate and they sent me a new one no problem. Just call them up or email them and they'll take care of you.

JRL? So what were you really doing when this happened? That break is pretty uniform, did your girlfriend take a circular saw to your board and go through the binding?
