I picked these up in the red colorway. Very stylish color and great quality of materials used throughout the binding. They are extremely light weight with buttery smooth ratchets. After several sessions with these bindings on my 2012 Banana Magic I would say I am very impressed with their comfort, flex, cushioning, and overall performance. The re-flex tech is definitely doing what it is suppose to. Not as stiff as I feared they would be but still has excellent response. I only found 2 drawbacks. No adjustability on the heel loops (pretty common with Burton)and the dull rubberized coating used on the bindings has already started to peel off in some areas. Not a big deal because I think the red actually stands out more without the rubberized coating.
