    On my FCB's, where the CF portion of the arm joins into the red hinge part it has become loose. There is no adjustment for this portion and my second pair nor any pair I've checked out in a store have this.

    It's odd because I have worn them twice for about 20 minutes each time so it's not abuse, but if it's just glue preventing them from wiggling that's going to become an issue for a lot of people.

    I reallllllly don't want to send them in for warranty but it looks like I have no choice.

    Here is a stock pic to show the area I am talking about; has anyone else noticed this? Carbon Blade - Possible Design Flaw Or Isolated Issue? - image.jpg

    Mine are ok.. They are a bit stiff where they have got wet but nothing is loose. They have been worn a lot.

    Pretty standard for non-transferable warranties.

    Because one person has a cosmetic issue? Even just among forum members you're looking at what, 5% or less?

    Not to make light of Yeti's issue, but with no one else having an issue I'm not going to rush to any conclusions about quality issues.

    No guarantee since he bought them second hand/used. Buying from a dealer gives you full warranty.
