The price was right and these all-mountain bindings fit my boots well. These puppies cannot handle abuse. Today was day 13 and I'm sick of them. The ankle straps keep coming undone after landing medium kickers and come loose way too often in general. Even the toe straps show significant wear and these ratchets are super screwy. Spend an extra $30-$40 and get a decent binding.
After sampling several boards from Neversummer I found this mass-produced board to be just as good as Neversummer's handmade high-end boards (and cheaper too). Perfect pop, effortless carving, and great at high speeds. I'm 190-200 lbs, 5'10", and ride the 158, 2012 mod.
