Anyways, about 2 weeks ago i ripped the brake so bad out of my rossingnol binding I destroyed about half the binding. After I finished crying, I took it to a local shop, the one i visit alot, (Sundance) to get it looked at, and repaired if it was possible.
They told me that it was beyond repair, and to take it to the shop I bought it from, OutOfBounds, and to have them deal with sending it in, or give their advice.
The moment i showed the OutOfBounds owner, he said that it was broken, he wasnt going to send it in to rossingnol for warrenty, because there was NO chance at all in gettign it repaired. He then advised me to buy a new set of wide brakes and try to fix the problem myself, or two look for a new heelpiece, because there was NO way he'd even try sending it in.
Now, as pissed as i was with the OutOfBounds owner, I quickly left and returned to SunDance, explaining the situation. SunDance told me they'd sed it in for me.
It has been a good 10 days, and Vern, the ski ninja who works at SunDance gave me a call today to tell me that Rossignol has warrentied my Scratch 140 and replaced it with THIS years binding.
Kinda funny how the OutofBounds owner told me there was NO chance of warrenty, and then told me to buy some of his product.
Now, the point of this story is DO NOT, by any means buy anything from OutOfBounds, the manager is a DICK, and he doesn't give a shit about anything other than money. I believe Matt Hennig had the same problem but with a pair of skis, about 2 years ago, and the OutOfBounds owner didnt do shit all.
My Advice is to boycott OutOfBounds, and shop at shops that at least show some appreciation to riders like Skiers, Sundance and Pacesetter.
