Default Technine binding on Burton Baord Question?

K, so 2007 pro classics T9s.. most of these were sold as a packakge (with board)..so, does anyone know if there was a 3 hole disc made for them to fit a Burton board?
I got a 3 hole disc made by Technine to convert..thinking it was the answer...and it is a bit small.. it doesn't fit. Do i have the wrong one?..or is there not one in exsistance to fit this binding???

As far as I know, only the new technine bindings have properly sized baseplates to fit on Burton's three hole setup. I bought 08 bindings from technine that came with a three hole disc and it didn't fit. Your pretty much stuck either drilling the holes out a bit more to make it fit, or just buying different bindings.

There are discs that are available.. and usually they work.. but, these ones did not. Burton makes their different on purpose... guess, they want us all to buy their bindings..
New T9 bindings come with the discs...but they are too narrow for my 2007 bindings...ARGH!

just buy some Romes, Rides, Unions, K2s...anyone that advertises a universal disc. T9's are sorta kinda crap anyway, I guess they're a decent first binding, but once you can carve a blue with confidence, you'll have grown beyond the performance range of T9. Which won't happen with most the others, even the lowest end Unions, the Cadets, get them...now...or don't, whatever.

How do you figure Technines are uter crap? I mean everyones entitled to their opinion, but it looks kinda foolish when you go out and say that something is complete shit and don't give any reasoning for it.

Your right I did come off a little strong and arrogant there, my bad. I appologize. I normally try not to do that when I personally dislike something.

I've just never personally known anyone that hasn't broken technines in some way or another.

SOOO, in MY experience cadets are better because they've been of higher quality of manufacturing and durablility. IN MY EXPERIENCE.

The Cadet sucks its the Cadet DLX that rides better.

T9 = Fisher price my first binding. Almost all their screws back out, the plastic they use doesn't have enough nylon composite mix in it so it doesn't flex to good and is prone to actually cracking.

I could write a masters thesis on the negative effects of T9. I still remember the day my brother came home limping and I was like dude whats up and he dropped his T9's on the floor in 5 pieces each. He was attemping a McTwist in the pipe came down in the tranny and they exploded. Not just the plastic bases but the heel cups full exploded.

Thanks Nivek, I'm sorry if I came off a little harsh as well. I just find its better to backup how you feel this way when newer people read it they will understand it better, instead of hating on a company for no reason.

All these bad reviews of Technine are really scaring me though, I guess I'll just sell mine to my friend since he thinks they are dope anyways and just try to find a cheap pair of rome 390s.
