ive had them for about two seasons now and the toe strap is just shredded apart.and it keeps sliding off of my toe. the screw holing the toe strap on fell off in the first two weeks i had them. they also seem kinda thin but maybe its just my boots (32 lashed). my friend had the same exact ones as me and his toe strap snapped off and burton wouldnt replace them. the backplate is held on with what seems like a good adjustment system but what really isnt. if you try to adjust them you must take the bindings off you board. and after you ride for a while you cant re-tighten them. overall they are responsive bindings, but have many drawbacks. for the money they are good for beginners but i would rather go with technines or unions for a intermidiate to high skill levels.
