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.
