    They actually carried through with that recall option plan?!? Oh my. I wonder what damage control analysis suggested that was the proper course of action? To be a fly on the wall in Yvon's office, or wherever he reflects on his legacy these days...

    And to make it (slightly) worse, I specifically sent them an email saying that I didn't want their shitty plastic harness and I wanted the replacement beacon they were offering in the fall (which I signed up for, but they ran out of beacons before I got one).

    So far, no reply to that email. The harness auto-shipped, apparently based on my request for the $100 trade in from last fall. I definitely did not make any new request for the plastic harness. So that sucks.

    My dsp sport is seven years old so Iím not going to push for a brand new replacement but yeah, I just bought a barryvox. I figure Iíll just use the pieps as a practice beacon/backup.

    The longer range of the barryvox alone was enough to make me want to switch.

    Another annoyance: the beacon won't fit in the harness if it's in any mode other than send. Seems like that would be a significant pain in the ass in a bunch of scenarios.

    I ordered a barryvox as soon as pieps announced their solution, but still, this is extra shitty.

    And their conclusion will be that there are so many happy folks who got replacement beacons (not harnesses), that it ate into demand.

    So, it won't fit when in the "off" position either? I suppose that makes sense, given the design. It gets worse with every detail that surfaces, but hey ... next year, they can offer the "rib protection" upgrade - a layer of memory foam

    Nope. Doesn't fit when in off, or in receive.

    They just sent an email saying that my "new carrying system" is on the way, despite the fact that I filed my claim when they were replacing beacons that were still under warranty with new ones. Since the case makes the beacon useless for those of us who use a beacon pocket, I figured I'd call the number they left at the bottom of the email to remind them that they owe me a new beacon, not a useless piece of plastic.

    Of course, the number asks for the extension of the person you are calling (they didn't give one) and hangs up after 3 tries. Even hitting 0 doesn't work. It's like BD is trying to kill any goodwill they had left. Unreal.

    I do not sell any of their ski stuff but I do work in a place that sells other BD stuff (including hardgoods) and I'm not inclined to recommend them going forward.

    Anyone want a practice beacon?

    What a dumpster fire. Can't believe this is what they are pushing out to the public after this long.

    Any chance I could get 2 codes? If this is their fix it looks like our beacons are being downgraded to practice beacons. Such a terrible fix.

    Yeah. Asking for free stuff your first post might seem a dick move.

    Ron will see you right I'm sure.

    If neither of those options work out, I know that Bobby Stainless mentioned he still has a code or two.
