I got these bindings at the end of last season in place of other technine bindings that i broke. As soon as i got them i was so stoked. I put them on my board that day an used em a bunch over the weekend. The r the best bindings i have ever used. They r awesome looking and the straps can defently hold down any weight weather ur hitting the huge jumps, grindin on the rails, and shreddin the powder. They are ultra durable through the worst weather and are super sensative giving u the smoothest and sharpest turns with eese. No matter who u r i would deffintly recomend these SICK bindings.
