I bought these because my MFM pro's '07 were awesome, especially for me because I like jibbing and buttering and my board was super flex so the bindings played along with me, but these MFM's suck. The little T's on the straps where you adjust the length, rust and break. The toe straps won't get tight, if I have them positioned correctly the bracket won't grab onto the ladder to tighten down because the ladder is too week and just bends. So I have to have the toe strap adjusted so it doesn't hold my boot in right, and it still slides down off my toe. Probably won't buy Technines again, Ride has the new bomb.com binding.
