This is what I was told about the Genesis by Burton, I have not ridden them:
The average buyer getting the super high end techy stuff is the guy with lots of money that rides maybe 5 days a year. That guy isnt really pushing his equipment and probably doesnt need something super responsive and stiff. Now, Genesis. A super techy binding that isnt "uber" stiff and "ultra" responsive. So the rich dude can spend his money but get a binding thats a little more appropriate to his ability.
Basically in price they replaced the Prophecy which would fit what youre looking for, but I dont know if they match up in performance. So with what I was told I think a demo before purchase is a good idea for the Genesis.
Whoever told you that should be fired. That's an awful thing to say about something the bindings department spent a lot of time on and an even more awful thing to say about a potential customer.
