My T7 did not come in plastic wrap, just the zipper case. That was straight from Burton as a replacement for some minor damage to a T6.

Also the binding marks are not nearly as pronounced as they'd be if it was used. The topsheets get dented pretty heavily from bindings on these boards. The true tell should be the base, if there are no gouges, even tiny ones, then it was likely never used.

Have you ever owned a board with an aluminium honeycomb core?

i think they were upfront about the board not being pristine, and you agreed on the price. So, I think your choice is either to accept the board as is, or return for a full refund. Getting another $50 or $100 off won't change how you feel about the board
Exactly that.

KIRKRIDER got my A-Frame (Arbor) at $158. Was $ 300 on sale originally (700) , found scratches, a small dent on an edge and most of all binding marks on the top sheet, once I stepped out of the shop in the sun.

they agreed to 70% off = $158

Sweet deal. Get that Vaporizer!

Triple8Sol In all seriousness it all looks pretty normal. Edges are typically made of steel. Steel oxidizes. It doesn't need to be left outside in the rain or dipped in the Pacific Ocean for this to occur. Boards in shops are always taken out of the plastic at any core snowboard shop I've ever been to. Maybe you're used to shopping at a box store like Sports Authority or something. Scratches happen, but you got a significant discount because of it. It will look that way after a few days out on the hill and riding on your ski rack anyways.

You got a fantastic deal on a new board. Now go use it. /thread

wrathfuldeity So you didn't get to pop the cherry....oh well sloppy seconds...why give a shit if you got a board you like for a great price. You take it down 1 run and its the same. My question for the shop....is the standard warranty good from your date of sale?

I'd say its been rode/demo once, perhaps a return or gang banged in the shop. But I'd prefer a quality slut that knows her stuff and place, than a quivering sniveling hysterical drama cherry.....which kinds of sounds like the situation.

Humidity and oils from your skin can cause oxidation/rust like that. I've also seen shops mount bindings for display. The shop down the street had a board with bindings on it trying to promote a last years model with last years bindings as a package price. The shop sounds like they have been responsive to you so its doesn't seem like they are hiding anything. As far as rain, sometimes business logic is absent lol.. You got a hell of a deal bro so I'd deal with it if you love that board..
