For about 12 years I have rode Burton Bindings and wont stray from them. Well my buddy is sponsored by Forum and told me I should get a pair of these just to try. I have now road with them for about 20 days now. In the trees they have the right amount of flex, the powder they are pretty good but in the park...I love them...They are my new park & pipe bindings. They are not as stiff as what I would free ride with but as far as comfort goes I give them a 10. They look sweet as well. I also like the fact that the high back is wide.
