I have had these for this season. I put these on my Lib Tec Skunk Ape 165. Just to add what I paired them with. I ride the DC Judge Boa for a boot. Great response with my new set up this year. I ride all mountain and mainly in off beat areas almost back country. I ride hard and I need response when I need it. I have broken every other binding I have ever used in the first year except the ride bindings I had last. They lasted me 2 seasons before I blew out a strap on a deep powder turn. I am a 6'2" 225 male that is built like a linebacker and so I can put a lot of force in every turn if I need. I was skeptical to go back to a poly base plate since the last 3 that swore they would stay broke in half. I have loved the comfort the response and the lighter weight than that of the aluminum. I say if there is any question get them. I am beyond pleased so far. For those talking Burton, I may be bias, but I have never found anything I have bought from them that has lasted. I buy nice and expect results. In this one I would 100% say you are choosing what you want.
