IM SUING!!

I also have to double check that the ratchets close after tightening the bindings. they have a tendency to not fold back down.
You can heelside without a highback. How do you think Now IPO's work when they are ridden without highbacks? You should have been flexing your feet if your highbacks were having issues. That's a rider fault as much as it is the bindings fault.

I also don't quiet get what you are saying, did the highback snap off? Even if the adjuster wasn't working the highback isn't going to disappear it'll just default to a neutral position..looking at my highbacks on my 390s as we speak.
