These really are great bindings. I have the Limited Edition neon color ones, that look way sick on an Artifact board. I am not a great snowboarder, in fact, I am a skier. But I am a somewhat intermediate level snowboarder. These bindings work great for me, they also work great for a beginner, and with a medium flex I am sure they work great for most advanced level park riders as well. They are easy to put on and easy to take off, and they never have released on me.
