As I'm cruising around the LF site checking out 2012 boards that I wont be buying because I'm a broke student, I notice that they've switched their inserts to metric threads. Really guys?
I know there really isnt a standard anything in wakeboarding (or life), but can we at least try? I got so excited when everyone was finally at 6" binding plates, Slingshot turned to the Fastrack system (or whatever they call their variation of channel mounting) so their bindings were easy to put on everyone's boards...and then wham. The System came out, the use of channel mounts means different hardware (not that it was ever all the same before), and now we have metric stuff thrown in the mix. I know I'm whining about innovation and being competitive with other companies, but HONESTLY! Can we draw the line at threads on binding screws? Dont tell me metric stuff is any better than imperial. Because I wont believe it./rant.
Feel free to put forward compelling arguments as to why metric is better.
