    Is Bomber still around and (at least) making alpine snowboard bindings? Are Fin-tec heels and heel receptors still available?
    I just heard back from a rep. at Bomber. Good news, they have parts for me!! Whoo hoo!! I plan on making a face-to-face trip sometime to visit them. He was very interested in the setup and in helping us keep this going! Teamwork makes the dream-work!!

    I’d love if Bomber gets back in the skiboard game, my BE2s are awesome. And this fintec setup sounds amazing, but the cost of the boots seems prohibitive to give it a go

    Honestly the boots weren't too bad. I got em at $300, while Apex boots go for $700, so really this isn't the end of the world. Throw on the heels and this is probably the most bomb-proof setup for non-release. I am super happy to have gotten in contact with him. I also directed him to the forum, hopefully we get some more interest that leads to sales for everyone!!!

    I found a guy in Boulder CO who has a bunch of pairs, but purchased from Deutchland. Had a great experience too. Let me know if you want the contact info for either person.

    I'm likely going to be doing a Colorado trip so the information would be great. I'd at least like to try some on before I commit to buying a niche boot with likely no return. I do already have the bombers so I like halfway there.

    I spoke with a Bomber Rep recently... He said they are going through bankruptcy court and a new principle is expected to start manufacturing again.

    I wanted to get permission to handout information, but the first gentleman I spoke to about the Deeluxe boots is in Boulder CO, just a quick drive from Denver. He wanted to be reached at through his Ebay account and do feel free to. His seller name is "1sboarder"
