I've had the same binding for the past 5 years and it was time to strap in with some new game. I never used a toe strap before so it took a while for me to get used to the difference but these bindings were amazing. Not only were they rocking but it didn't take much for me to take control on the slopes. The only thing I will say is it takes an extra minute to strap in off the chair lift because of the design for the bindings. It's worth it though.
