Like strapping your boots into a Stealth Fighter
The Burton Diode EST Binding is what you get when the Big B decides to show off just how far it can push binding tech. The carbon fiber highback yields incredibly direct feedback, and the crazy-light, super-stiff carbon composite baseplate employs The Hinge for a touch of lateral flex. It gets better when you factor in the new Hammockstrap, which forgoes bulky padding in favor of an engineered rubber ankle strap that's light and comfortable. The helical teeth and Insta-Click technology of the Double Take buckles provide solid heel-hold and precise adjustability. Basically, you're looking at the most responsive EST binding on the planet. Naturally the blacked-out look doesn't hurt either. If your board has The Channel mounting system, and you're looking Skunk Works-level tech, this is it. The Diode is dialed.

Anyone in a size 10 boot feel the Medium...
Anyone in a size 10 boot feel the Medium binding is too small? I ran a 10 driver X and a medium diode and feel the gas pedal was not totally under my toe, resulting in loss of toe side response.
Any one run a large Burton binding with a size 10 Burton boot? If so, do you feel too sloppy side to side? I feel a size 10 is stuck between a med and lg. arg...
I wear the Burton Hail in a size 10 and have used them with the Burton Diode EST Snowboard Binding in a Large. I know what you mean about a 10 being between sizes in this binding, but the Large binding fit me great and I had no issues with sloppiness or lack of feel. If you are at all hesitating about size I would definitely recommend the Large based on personal experience.
