Have ridden the 2007 model for the past couple seasons and have been very impressed with the durability and comfort of them. I found the flex to be just about right for my style of riding which is hitting every hip I can, lots of drops, speeding through trees, steeps, etc. I only occasionally hit the park so I can't speak for its performance there too much. But if you want a nice binding with good adjustability and comfort then consider these. I did have a couple loose screws which were easily remedied with Teflon tape.
