i got my freestyles beginning of last season....
after 2 days out riding on it...i ditched it and got a union force.
the freestyles are too soft to my likings and they are NOT durable at all.
So flimsy after only 2 days out, i have cracks on the side of the heel cup near the screws.
note: i dotn even do parks or go running around banging up my new board.
but if u dont ride that much i suppose spending 30 bucks for a entry level binding that will probably last u 2 or 3 seasons is okay.
