I'll be calling Burton next...
Haha you got sucked into the Burton trap.

pgroove I am. I'd be happy with three as long as they lined up with the 4-hole pattern.

laz167 I had a similiar problem last year.. I bought some Technine bindings for my girls burton board and no fit. What the shop guy did was drill the baseplate holes biggier, it worked.

chowman94 i have the same disc also. if sometimes if one way doesnt work, you have to turn it all the way around 180 degrees and then the holes will fit. Thats how i solved my problems

pgroove Thanks everyone. I've tried spinning the discs every which direction, switching them between bindings--no dice! I called the store I got it from and they said to bring it down and they will figure something out for it.

Hopefully they have some other discs that will fit it better. Since the problem is only with the 4-hole pattern, I think something like this should work.
