I'm a huge fan of Burton bindings in general, but I hate when they take form over function like they did with alot of parts of the Diode. You could tell there were going to be issues with the funky looking inside highbacks and footbeds as those holes made for too many places for dirt and snow to build up. No FLAD was a pain to setup and dial in... at least they're adding that to the 2014s. As far the cracked baseplate, I'm guessing that's what happens when you take a stiff reflex baseplate and pair it with a soft or mid flexing board?

Waiting to see the genesis hiback issue posts appear... these are one seriously comfy pair of bindings, but those hibacks are seriously fragile.
