Why would you snag one boot? If you show anyone, you're certain to get busted. Can his friends be trusted not to say "I saw an 07 Zeus!"

I love how 07s are already in prototype.

just another wonderful story regarding fed ex. hey dpc, ain't fed ex great?

me - "why isn't my package here? it was supposed to be here today!"

fedex rep - "the flight from emeryville to oakland was delayed so your package didn't make the flight from oakland to l.a."

me - "uh.....emeryville is a 10-minute drive to oakland."

fedex rep - "oh...i don't know what to tell you."

I have a great fedex story for you:

Its very long so i'll sorten it...

Bought 3 pairs of 05 Sphynx for my girlfriend, bro, and me. I live in Canada and had them sent to Florida to save on shipping cause i went on vacation there.....Anyway very long story short they dropped all $1000 worth infront of the wrong condo door without a signature, and we spend more then half the trip tracking them down..

WE FOUND THEM OURSELVES hahaa, FedEx was useless, we ended up chasing down a few delivery trucks though..

But it all ended good, no thanks to fedEx

"The factory In Seattle" Got to love that there still made in the USA. Can't say that for much any more. Way to go CWB.

Honestly how are you really going to benefit from having one 2007 prototype. The worst I would do would be, take a picture and put it back.
Now CWB are going to have to rebuild this binding slowing down the testing and development process.
So when your zeus bindings are late next year or they break just blame the fed-ex guy.

Probably a payoff to the fed-ex guy from one of the high up's at Hyperlite. They want to get a hold of a prototype early to try to figure out why they got their a$$ handed to them so badly this year.

At the begging of this year someone broke into radar lake and stole all the 06 product and left the old stuff. I think we have a espionage campain on our hands.

You guys are scaring me with all the FedEx stories. My new tower is being delivered by them tomorrow.

Uh, doesn't it sound a bit like a publicity stunt to get us buzzing about new product?????
Old     (kristian)      Join Date: Nov 2002       03-30-2006, 5:50 PM Reply   
The buzz is usually saved for the end of the summer that way they can sell the most out of the current product.

Maybe the Fed Ex guy has disproportionate feet and the Zeus would only fit one of his feet, so he snagged it. It would definitely be cool to see the boots.

If it was, CWB didn't let me in on it.

Sounds like CWB needs to check on their employees in the shipping dept.

However I wouldn't be surprised if this infamous missing binding shows up at the CIE Spring Ride.

Poo Ex.. When it has to be there overnight..

This is not an April fools joke. We found out on March 3rd when the package with only one Zeus in it was delivered to Florida. I am sure Dave will have a better April Fools joke for you.

Maybe the fed-ex guy only has one foot. From what it sounds like they must have lost all the new HL products too. Oh well, no big loss there (sorry, sorry, I'm just kidding. I really didn't mean that).LOL
