Yup, rode my Burton X-base since 2012 and finally broke it last month in Niseko (Japan)
And yes it was because I forgot to put the highback down on a chairlift.
Burton says only replacement is a Diode highback ($40)
Don't mind paying for it but I know that it'll bug me that it doesn't match the other side....anyone got a Left medium X-base highback they wanna sell?

Its the beginning of the 2014-15 season and ive been riding my X-Base bindings now for 3 years. I average about 35-50 days a season and mine are in great shape no cracks or snapped highbacks. If you cant remember when or how this happened you cant blame it on the bindings. You can take these into any rep shop and they will say the same thing im saying now. They broke because you forgot to lower your HB getting on or off the lift plain and simple. Im confident in saying this because ive broken 2 HB's that look exactly like yours dude. So everyone reading this rest assure this guy broke it on the chair forgetting to lower it.

Ha ha! That's just not going to happen. Skied until I bought a K2 Gyrator with Sims bindings at Rim Rock Mall in Billings, MT in 1988. Went to Bridger Bowl the following day and right up their highest run (used to have to take two lifts to get up there). Spent most of that day getting down (a few feet-catch an edge, a few feet and catch an edge). Hated boarding and if I was not already the less-than-proud owner of a board, that might have been the end of it. The next morning, we were greeted with a lot of fresh pow. Skied in the AM and decided to give the board another try after lunch. First run in the pow and it clicked and I never skied again. Seriously, never once skied after I figured out how to board. Sold all my ski gear off and never looked back.
Well, anyway, found my receipt for the bindings. We'll see if Burton sends me a new back or if I have to buy one. I do agree with SL that these are just too thin. I could probably make a low-rent repair to it if need be, but I'll wait until I hear back from The Big B.
I am liking this new Custom Flying V Wide. Whole lotta board. Although very limited use thus far, it's the first board I have really liked since my old Aggression 172. I have pretty much the same channel setup on my wakeboard and I do like that feature.

I know...You'd think after 24 years of boarding (with healthy absence in the middle) I'd know how to get off a chairlift.
SL, I was surprised how much Meadows had on the ground. Obviously, very early season conditions, but not bad at all. Bummer the freezing level seems to be heading up over the next few days.
