Same problem too, I just bought my magnetos bindings (black-med) :thumpsup: today. Was a tough job I can tell ya....I'm pretty sure all of Austria is out of them( ive searched the last 3 weeks)...and most of Germany.
You can get the Blue or Lichen (all sizes) and black (Large). I not sure why Sparks/burton didnt produce more of them ????
Good luck in finding some soon..
Hope my goodies arrive in time :twocents:

I think the demand for Magnetos was far more than what Spark was expecting. I know those guys are working over time to fulfill orders right now.

So, if you happen to have some blazes or burners, you can actually buy the Magneto baseplate system
http://www.sparkrandd.com/gear/tesla-ba ... s/magneto/
and disassemble your older bindings and move them over. 250.00 and reusing your existing gear is a lot nicer then 400 :D.

I emailed them to ask this that too is an option, that said, I found some at that tactic place up in Eugene.

I rode the Afterburners in their demo form. I would consider them as an option as well. A bit more money, but you know them freeekin things will last a long time.
