Chip is revealed to have three dimensions, metal circuits connected to flat metal dohinkies, looks like it's going on under the top sheet for some distance beyond the little visible top we normally see. Could it be invested in enough surface area to (gasp) actually impact performance? Don't want to go out on limb, but seems like a lot of extra trouble for marketing b.s. that could have been achieved with just the little top chip connected to nothing...
So here's the test, then, that you have to do for the collective here and our interminable arguments about i tech and chips and such: 1) Determine if the chip circuits appear to be damaged. If yes, that's a good thing for us, not so good for you. But ski it as is, one run. See if the tail feels a bit different. Report back to us. Then send it back to Head and ask for a new pair, write a nice letter of woe. Emphasize lack of glue, structural defect, damage to chip that does so much. Tell them Epic is watching. They may shock you and send you a new one. Or two. Or not.
If there's no chip damage, then fix as instructed above...
