Yup, new out of the box like that. Trying to get to the hole on the left, but the t-nut is stuck in the center hole and won't budge.

oefdevilvet With all the breakage problems I've heard about Targas, I'm really happy I went with the El Hefe.

extra0 I didn't have any mechanical problems with my targas. What made me finally sell was they weighed a full 10 ounces more than the new crop of burton bindings...10 oz is a lot

The bad with the good

Picked up some Targas last week. Finally got some time to set them up the last couple days and can't adjust the heel hoop to the size I need. First, the heel hoop screws were stripping when I unscrewed them, I thought they were screwed down excessively tight. Not a big problem, Rome CS sent me new screws. Next issue- the heel hoop t-nut is jammed sideways in the heel hoop hole (maybe why it was so hard to unscrew?). And this passed QC somehow. It's disappointing to experience these sorts of things before I can even get them mounted to my board, let alone ride them.

Despite this, their CS is super helpful and willing to do whatever it takes to satisfy their customers, from my experience with them so far. I don't typically find many companies willing to do that in any business. Hopefully the ride will be worth all the hassle

Enjoy:

I noticed this exact same thing with my Burtons. Highbacks had to be cranked all the way forward just to meet the profile of the boot.

Only bitch so far is that i had to engage all the forward lean available just to get the high backs near my boots!

I love em and the highbacks are the best ive tried in the last 3 years. I talked to the CS at Ride and they said that Rides arent meant to be strapped on too tight, I guess i like mine a bit tighter than usual. They are sending me replacements after i emailed them pics of the issue.
