Sorry for the long silence, you can only post that they aren’t ready yet so many times. This last week we finally got things moved into production, once I’m back from Christmas we’ll be shipping a number of sets every day. I went back through all of my emails, pm’s, and people’s posts since I started talking about my bindings and came up with the following priority list (hard to tell if some comments are preorders or not, so I erred on the side of caution). If you want a quick way to see where you are on the list you can hit control f to search within the page. If you’re on there twice with your SB.com username and your real name let me know and I’ll delete the extra one. Also, if you’re not going to order let me know as well and I’ll take you off the list. I’ll get in touch with people individually when their bindings will be done within a few days, and we’ll coordinate shipping, payment, color choice, and whether or not you need completes or baseplates only (for those of you that have bent metal missionary bindings already.) If you would like to be added to the list please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.The binding is currently offered in one size which a friend with size 12 boots fits just fine. I’ve also put my gf’s size sevens in there and they seem to fit pretty well. Here are some shots of each in action: The big boot is about 12.8″ long (32.7 cm) and 5″ (12.7 cm) wide. The little boot is 10.75″ long (27.7 cm) and 4.375″ (11 cm) wide. With the narrow boot you might want to put some foam shims in there to take up the extra width. (If you have a huge foot you should get on the Venture Divide wide, 28 cm waist width.)I do currently have a crampon proto, which you can see more about on page two of this thread: http://www.splitboard.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t=2843&start=15&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight= I’ll get that in production later, I’m not even going to try and put a date on it, the magic eight ball is out of order.At this point I’m not including the baseplate padding. I haven’t been stomping too many 20 stair sets to flat on my split. I’ve been out with and without the padding and I seriously can’t feel the difference. I’d like for people to try them without the padding and see how it rides. If you feel you need it after trying it without I’ll get you hooked up. I feel like it’s extra bulk and weight you don’t need, but if ya need it ya need it.Prices: Complete $340: A complete set of bent metal missionary bindings plus the Spark R&D Ignition Baseplates and pins.Baseplates only $215: For those that already have a set of the bent metal missionary bindings, just the Spark R&D baseplates to go with them.Shipping: Domestic shipping varies from $8 – $17 for ground service. Whistler BC is around $25.10.There may be some additional taxes and fees depending on where you are and how payment is made.That’s the scoop everybody. I’m really stoked on how these are turning out, feel free to email with any questions.

But how’d that sumbitch Unruly Baker get all up front?And yes what all forms of dirtbag payment do you accept? Credit cards, half a bag of premium dogfood, some jade rocks, Schlitz, a lightly used vacuum cleaner, password to my porn sites, pics of my ex… December 17, 2007 at 8:08 pm #600730 rms56 121 PostsGreat news Will!!!!!!!!!!!

Completes, medium, black or blue.UB December 17, 2007 at 9:50 pm #600732 Will 377 PostsI’ll have my business paypal account up and running in 3 days or so. I’ll get a stack of bindings together so once that’s good to go I can start shipping these. Paypal takes most payment forms, but I don’t think they take dog food or Schlitz! Maybe once we have web 3.0…… December 17, 2007 at 11:43 pm #600733 stomppow 150 Postsyee yeeah! yeeah! I’m both #96 and #104 I’ll order em as soon as you got your payment system up and runningan honor to be the first in line of a revolution in splitboarding 🙂 the talk on these babies is going to disseminate to the far reaches of every splitter house in British Columbia that’s for sure, I bet even new-to-backcountry people will be talking about them on chairlifts2 questions: -are crampons a possible future addition, or are they already included, or are there no plans so far? -is the padding standard? I like padding 🙂 December 18, 2007 at 12:02 am #600734 ride_pow 116 PostsNice! Congrats Will. It looks like you have enough people in line to keep you busy for a while.And I spent all that time aligning new bindings on my plates too…If you get to me before New Years I might just have to pick them up in person.

Now that you’ve been getting stuff from all of your sponsors you’ll have to post the full quiver.

I just measured the sole–12.45″x4.5″I know you posted the baseplate demension but I couldn’t find the thread.Anyways, I’m in fo sho if they fit. Congrats on the progress.

Worth every hard earned or shady penny.My feeling: Once you go Spark you’ll never go back.Thanks Will, see ya later this week.

These bindings rock for sure but the highback concerns me. It looks like my C60 highbacks will work with some mod-work and I should be able to add my toe-cap straps too. 8)Dremel and beers tonight…finally ridding on Thursday-Friday. :thatrocks: Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 147 total) 1 2 3 … 6 7 8 →The topic ‘Spark R&D now in Broduction, official preorder list’ is closed to new replies.
