europe is a different story.

To get 200 inserts costs about 120 euros.
To get 200 Tee nuts costs 40.

Big difference.

I was more wondering what the difference is structurally?

Tee Nuts instead of snowboard inserts

Hi


Snowbaord insertes can work out pretty expensive.
So i was wondering if a tee nut would work?
