Gear warranty?

Hey guys,
So basically im after some new bindings, if I get it from overseas the warranty is void, if I get it local it cost $100.00 more.

Is it worth going for the warranty? do the companies provide spare parts if something breaks etc? not sure how far it goes.

Also just had a look at my board, seems flow has a limited 1 year one.

Any opinion on which to go for or if the warranty is worth it in the first place?

Thanks!

You're faced with the same flip-of-a-coin problem that everyone faces when deciding whether or not to get the extended warranty. There's no way to predict the 'right' outcome. Personally I'd be more concerned about the hassle involved in trying to handle an overseas warranty issue. Worth the $100 to me for the convenience of dealing locally. But that's just my personal take.

I have personally broken a lot of gear and can't buy anything without proper warranty. If you ride hard I would pay extra for the better warranty.

Rome, Never Summer, and Flux come to mind when I think about warranty and great customer service. Also dogfunk and backcountry have 100% return policy.
