What's up? I AM over it. I even looked into it. It's true, it happened. All of this stuff being written isnt by me....I sign my name to my posts. At any rate, I think SlingShot has their skate issues sorted out at this point.

I understand that Slinshot does have it's own kite factory now, although it is still in China.
This is true, we should see even better quality control than before.

there have been problems with slingshot skate series boards and it can't only be in the uk.
i've seen 4-5 with the footstraps pop off, due to them using a deep thread in a loaded nylon insert rather than a tight machine thread.
thats simple plastics skills guys. you use shallow high tpi screws in plastic not low tpi self tappers, thats basic.
Yer absolutley correct! This too has been addressed. Some of us though realized the screw issue BEFORE we used them and used something we thought was more appropriate. I can understand that one should be able to use what's included, but if what's included happens to be the wrong stuff, you need to use your brain to realize this and address it PRIOR to having the problems.

i pulled the footstarps out of one of mine, drake
and i saw my mate pete pull the footstarp off of his mate darrans jarvis not four week ago.
I believe you! But, what model of skate...what year? Is it an older one? I mean, it may be new to him, but it may have been setting in a shop for alot of months. Anyway....he can use the warranty if he feels it necessary and he bought it new from a shop. IF he did do it through a shop and they aren't giving him the support he needs, PLEASE have him contact me and we will get him taken care of.

and you will find loads of people who have had problems with there 2002 slingshot boards!!
DID as you said and found as you said. I was never here calling ANY of you liars for the record.
Is this the official "attack Johnny" day here or something?
ALL boards break and have problems from time to time. This is true. Especially on a new product that hasnt been in publics abuse for long enough to sort out such things. It happens.
I've seen alot of different boards with alot of different problems. It's a fact of life. The main thing though is IF you have a problem, is the company going to stand behind their product? BUT, I personally guarantee you that if you are experiencing problems with ANY of your SS gear, and you bought this gear from a dealer, not from some guy online, SLINGSHOT WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU!
