So I bought these bindings last year during the huge Getboards sale where all bindings were $99 and skis for $199. While they were purchased on like 04-14-07, I didn't began using them until December of 07, when the Snoqualmie season began. Since then, they've only been used for about 6 days, in fact I still have my receipts and everything. The bindings, aside from a few scuffs look new. I thought this might be a warranty issue but upon looking at 4frnt's warranty webpage, it's been over a year since I purchased, and I really can't prove that this was a result of manufacturer defect rather than use or "abuse".
So my question to you is, how important is the housing? If I remember correctly, can't you swap them out or something? Isn't the releasing mechanism the importan part... and that's still safely stored. I tested the binding after I noticed the crack and it was still working properly. I dunno, here are some pics:
RE: the insult "That's gayer than AIDS"
Your insult would have made sense if it was said in the 80s or 90s, but now the incidence of AIDS is more prevalent in heterosexual individuals*... the correct way to try pwning someone with that statement now a days is to say "I'm sorry to those I offend, but that was officially more heterosexual than AIDS".
Sorry you fail.
