I just bought the '09 Missions this year right before a trip out to snowshoe, wv this march. I used them for 8 hours a day, 4 days straight and so far they are amazing. The key to this binding is getting it properly adjusted. The toe caps can be a little tricky but once you find your cozy spot its perfect. They are super flex and I have way more control than my ride lx's could've ever given me. I highly recommend these bindings to anyone looking for a good binding. They were easily controllable in the park, on a jib, on a wall, whatev. Buy them!
