great binding, bad hardware

I got these bindings about two weeks ago. First thing I thought is that they look amazing. Don't be skeptic about the design. They're sick.

Pretty comfy, nice toe cap. A little on the heavy side. Sturdy binding overall. But, I was a little disappointed to find out that there is NO stance adjustment to center your foot to the board. I like riding bindings one notch back to give me that skateboard under your feet feel (slightly more heel overhang than toe). The only way to adjust this is to turn the baseplate 90 degrees, completely eliminating the effect of the goodvibes disc.

Lastly, THREE count 'em THREE parts broke BEFORE I EVEN RODE THEM. The highback rotation screw and toe cap/toe cap screw ALL got stripped on the same binding when I first adjusted them. I called Forum for replacement parts and they gave me a hard time about getting new parts. I ended up replacing the highback screw myself and forcing the toe cap to fit. So now I'm riding with a broken toecap and a screw I found in my shed in the highback.

Bottom line, GREAT binding, made like crap by a company with crappy customer service.
