It's not that I really have a problem, more along the lines of I do care about other views. Now it's not like I'm sporting the confederate flag on my board or anything. But what is with all the grenade negativity?

Grenade has an awful reputation for shoddy products, in addition to having, IMO, a shitty marketing image now that every person who shops at Zumiez has a Grenade diecut on their 2WD, lifted truck. When Danny and the guys started the company back in the early 2000s, it was a really cool, new brand that a lot of people chose to support, which is why it thrived. However, their products constantly were poor quality and always fell apart. I had numerous pairs of CC935s, and my buddies owned a couple other models, and they kept breaking down. Add to the fact that they totally diluted their brand's image by marketing it towards Zumiez and lame motocross stuff, it eventually turned away a lot of potential customers.

Plus there was that whole issue with Matt and Danny...

But those bindings are made by Union, and unlike Grenade, they are high quality and shouldn't break on you, so no worries.

I actually really like those bindings, and would try to find a pair if they weren't made on the Contact base.

Yeah, I bought a pair of Grenade DK Triggers and they started ripping at the seam after 5 days of riding. Thankfully Wiredsport.com was willing to do an exchange (even though it was after my return period), unfortunetly I took a second change on Grenade with the Pro Model Lago mitten, and the quality was just as bad.

So I'm done with Grenade...

ohh, and another shit fact about Grenade. When those DK Triggers broke after 5 days of riding, I called Grenade direct and I was essentially told to fuck off. They told me that they only deal with wholesale, and I had to deal with who I bought it from (talk about standing behind your product).

I have delt with Sessions and Burton regarding gear in the past also. Sessions straight up called me back (twice), and Burton emailed me within hours...fuck Grenade
