What is the reason for staying with the 2x4 and 4x4 patterns? Are the channels more expense to produce?

It seems a dual channel would be best to me. Infinite adjustability but still able to accommodate all bindings.

Pretty sure burtons patent was the reason. It must be expired now as other brands are doing it.

afaik, B just has the EST bindings patented. Channel might have had one at one point (I know forum had patented the iLock system before B bought them, maybe that transferred to the Channel).

I think other brands just wanted to see how they held up over the years before putting the Channel in their own boards.

p.s. i know this probably in here somewhere (I haven't had the time to read all the way through yet), but where do you get all of your supplies?
