On my front binding the plastic that runs along the backside of the disk cracked through. I have no idea how it could have happened since I've only used them all of 10 times on the snow with no big impacts of any sort. It's the circular part of the baseplate that encases the disk. I'll try to get some pictures up later. I'm pretty sure the warranty covers this sort of defect, as it is most likely a manufacturer defect and not rider abuse. My question is if they replace the binding for me, am I going to get the newer model binding or will they have the 2012 ones to give me? I like the ones I have now because the white/black peppered color looks amazing on my board lol. I see there is no white option in this season's model. Any insight from people who have been through this process would be great. Thanks in advance.
Like others have said, Burton (I hear) is pretty good on warranty and all base plates carry a lifetime warranty (If i'm not mistaken). Best of luck!
