such a shill... too bad you didn't win the bindings lil buddy.
Even though you may not think so, you're belittling yourself WAY more than you think you're belittling others. People are starting to notice.
OP, that's the way they're designed. Coming off of forces and contacts they felt a little weird to me too, when I first strapped in and I had the same reservations as you. However, after riding them, I found that, sinking feeling, wasn't there at all and that the binding was actually quite nice and damp in the heel. I am, BY NO MEANS, comparing myself to T.Rice, but they're also my favorite bindings ever, and allowed me to sell my Cartels.
Have you ridden them yet? If so, and it still felt weird and something you can't get over, then definitely swap out. If not, I say give them a try.
Alka, I actually don't/won't have the team bindings for very long. I'm sending them to Jerms! Spreading the stoke.
