I do not have these exact bindings, but i do have a pair of flow bindings, and i must say, they are the most comfortable bindings i have ever worn. With these bindings there are no pressure points anywhere on your foot allowing for comfort and more control. Also, the snap in feature is amazing, but it gets annoying when you are waiting for friends to get their bindings on. lol. anyways. best bindings i have ever worn. dont think i will ever go back to rachet bindings.
