I do prefer the traditional binding over the Cinch. The Cinch should really be referred to as a mid-top entry binding instead of rear entry IMO. I can't tell you how many times I got my boot half way in the binding, started sliding down the hill and wiped out. ...not cool.
I love my Salomon Rythm bindings. I bought them for under $100 off Ebay.
I can get into the bindings rather quickly. I just start the toe cap while I'm on the lift by ratcheting it one click. Then when I get off the lift I put my boot in, put the toe cap over, lock it in, then put the ankle strap on. I do this while standing. It only takes me about 10 seconds or so.
