Have you compared Burton bindings over the last 20 years?

I have 2 diff pair of Burton Bindings that came on the Terje pro model deck "The 152" back in 1995.

They are almost the same as today's bindings, a few minor tweaks but pretty much the same.
I'm sure the materials are more high tech, but not really the design.
So the materials in those can't be that far behind.

The one thing it doesn't have is the Living Hinge™ Hi-Back.

Oh, but wait.
Neither does the Diode or Genesis, aren't they they most expensive high tech bindings that Burton makes?

Unless you like to spend more money or you can find cheaper, newer ones, Those will work exactly the same as $100, or even $200 dollar bindings.
