My experience - I ordered a Flightdeck from them earlier in the year - They sold it with LF Comp pads and a LF handle. Now the handle did not fit the board and they had to redrill it to fit. The handle came apart on me and they sent another but they didn't drill the new one. So now I have a handle that won't fit.
VERY low-budget for a $500+ order I think!!!
I do everything I can to buy local and this experience just confirmed that! Most local shops will come pretty close to matching the legit internet deals. In this case Real was selling out the Flightdecks because of some issue between them & Jimmy Lewis (never did hear what that was about), so it was about $250 cheaper than I could find a comparable board locally
I don't get it...you don't own a drill? We're talking about the hole in a plastic handle, right?!?!
I'm not replying to pick sides, I'm replying because I think you got a great deal! Those LF Comp pads are great. Much better than whatever pads normally came with the board. If you saved $250+ on a board, got better bindings, and only have a handle to worry about...that's still a pretty good friggin' deal.
