I always wondered how long it would take for board company's to stop using lame inserts...

Track systems kinda suck TBH.
Hard to really lock your binders down and do you really need microscopic stance adjustments (no, you dont).
Most mainstream companies have abandoned them after a short run.

Well, thats what wakeskating is for.

Ive never ridden a track system that kept binders in place. Seen plenty of them rip out. They get sand/dirt in them and get crunchy.

I dont know, there are worse things out there for sure. Glad you are doing your thing man, keep at it!

I've never had a problem in 28 years ,i use 5/16~18 bolt over a 1/4~20 screw ,witch gives you almost 200% more grip,,,like in surfing you can move your foot a 1/4in and THERE'S THE SWEET SPOT

yeah, i think the sliding is unnecessary. can't blame a company for trying to create their own propriety next big thing. but based on number of 4d stuff on sale i would say maybe not working so great...

great thing about this country is that it is their risk, and their reward.
