Well considering all the parts they've sent me lately and the fact that I need to sell these to pay for the ones I had to buy while on vacation they might ship me new ones if I ship my old ones in.

No arguement here lol. Just in my experience they send out parts freely but getting a whole new set is out of the question. It takes me 3 weeks to a month to get my replacement parts delivered every time something breaks which is a total pain in the ass and costs them more in shipping to Australia than a whole new set would but they wont send me a new set.
By sending me a whole new set I would have my own diode wrecking yard so I can fix my ow fkn parts on the spot when they break lol instead of the shitfight it is atm.

When I was talking to them about getting my new frames I asked them why they didn't just send me a new pair of bindings. Shit the heel cup stickers were still in the mail. They said they would but they'd need my old bindings first. I was headed to Utah and wasn't gonna risk shit not showing up in time.

Nope, I always fold mine down for that exact reason (L bindings = tall highbacks = fold that shizz down), but I've seen enough people complaining on this forum wondering why they couldn't get them warrantied after the fact. That really sucks it happened but you should be stoked they warrantied them since it DOES look like lift induced highback breakage.
