Its a pity I love them cause they really are fragile pieces of shit.
my rear toe attachment is coming loose at the bottom of the runs as well. Although sitting down and strapping in does seem to help that.

Were the C02s the other one? I've got a pair of 2009 Disc C60s that I bought for the Virus. The Diodes seem to be hanging on for me (despite slamming some knuckles pretty hard!), so I may sell the C60s one of these days.

One thing I noticed riding the two bindings back to back the other day, the C60s feel LOCKED IN. I have my EST set on a 2012 Burton Custom now and they are almost overkill. VERY responsive. Not that I'm unimpressed with the Diodes, they just need me to run my boots tighter.

Yep-- that's them. The CO2s. Was just reading some reviews that say the c60 and CO2s are stiffer than Diodes so you're 'feel' is spot on with the reviewers.

I think the CO2s come with a re-flex disc in 2011 model which is what I'd hold out for should I need to go that direction.

+1 to this. I'm using Targas on my Dark Series and Raiden Machines on my Kessler this season. While I like both bindings, I find myself happier with Targas. Even though the Machines are the stiffer of the two bindings, I find the Targas to be oddly more responsive. I'm going to switch my binding combo this coming weekend to see if it is a combination issue, or if I really just perfer the Targas.

Foot pads....

Weighed them tonight , since I have to rip my entire binding apart to swap frames, and was amazed by outcome.

Check it out..... The prophecy footpad (front/rear) weigh 8 oz less than the diode.

I'm thinking about taking off the highback foam to lighten even more, but main reason is to prevent ice build up.

Just an update--- burton sent out two new frames just before I left for Utah. Used them for four days without issue.

that's 8/10s of an ounce difference. 8 oz would be 1/2lb.
