Yep mine have been great and their a couple years old now and I really like the way they make me feel "locked in". I still like conventional bindings for out west since you only have to strap in every 20 minutes or so instead of every 5 like in the midwest.
Same here...get off chair, slide, point one hand on the steep slope near the lift..lock...go. I'm usually alone and on powder days those few seconds saved mean you're ahead of the pack....at every chair. Damn I can't wait.
