No probs man. Im sure someone will chime in with some other stiff binding options for you, I will be watching and taking note also.

I have another diode highback on the way to me now but I rode pretty much all season with broken highbacks waiting for my replacement ones to arrive which sucks, the first one broke within 4 hours of it seeing the snow. The "carbon fiber" highbacks are fucking fibreglass with a carbon veneer on the inside and the outside, weak as piss they are.

They also have a pad inside the heel cup that holds the "carbon" highback away from the plastic heel cup and they fall off every second day wrecking your forward lean adjustment and probably compromising the strength of the highback even further.
If you were sponsored I would say these are THE bindings to use, but for us poor souls who have to pay for our gear burton diodes arent worth shit.
