Please, explain to me how having solid plastic from heel to board provides any dampening. Cause it doesnt. This dampening issue is not something I've recently decided exists. I noticed it when I OWNED Datas. The bushings do not dampen for shock, the deaden chatter a bit and promote better board flex.
And do you all realize you are bitching and whining to me for simply calling a toe strap, ratchet, and one of their frames dampening crap. I havent said the entire binding sucks once. And again, I have owned 3 different pairs and ridden 2 more on more than one occasion. I have more than 200 days in Unions.
By the way the toe ratchet on my 09 Contacts is the same as on the 2013 Force. But the Force is milled out. Which does nothing to change the functionality. It works the exact same way and still performs sub par compared to the rest of the industry.
