I know, I've seen a few Ride bindings in my research travels here... no doubt they all look better than the set I have now, even fundamentally different in the ways my current Ride bindings let me down - several of their models caught my eye actually.
But a bad experience doesn't leave me feeling like I should reward that with another purchase.
If nothing else, I'd like to try something new from someone new.
I also have a growing list of bindings as it just seems like there are nice things on one, that isn't on another, the perfect binding seems elusive.
In the last few years I've been thru these 4:
-really old t9's
-Ride Contraband (hated)
-k2 Uprises (comfy, but sorta fell apart, not great customer service)
-got some new 'Vitas, and probably Cartels later in the year too
Still want to try
-Raiden Machine and Blackhawk
-Flux xx30, xx45, and either of the DMCC models
-even tempted towards Forum bindings a little
