I just got a pair of RADs and to my surprise the screws don't fit. Can anyone give me some info on what to do?
The board is the Best Armada V2 I wonder if it will hold the beat of boots.

Hi,
what do you mean? are the screws longer? Or you can't screw them? Consider that Slingshot uses Imperial screw while a lot of brand use M6 ones. You can try to get some M6 screws and some washers.

Ciao

Well the screws won't go in, but it seems to me that the probelm is the thread of the screw not the diameter of it.

Not really. A m6 bolt is almost the same size as a 1/4-20. Without a caliper and a pitch gauge it would be hard to tell for someone that didn't know about that stuff. No need to make someone feel shit for asking a question.
