I was so close to buying a pair of these and now I'm kind of glad I didn't after hearing about your guys' issues. Thanks for posting about this.

It's interesting that last season's diodes had an issue with the highbacks and this year's seem to have an issue with the baseplate. I wonder if they did some tweaking of the materials to put more elasticity into the hb and by chance created a stress point/riser on the baseplate.

I dont think so. They are breaking all over the place regardless of what year model. Mine are last seasons.

ETM's looks like last years'. I think I am the only person that has not had some kind of failure on it. (Maybe I am just a smaller guy at 175lbs?)

I found gentle taps with screw driver breaks up the ice real fast. I also have the level superpipe gloves with the studs, it comes in handy. Gonna try the Nikwax spray this weekend.

I haven't had any issues either, got about 20 days on mine so far. I've knuckled some big jumps too! I'm only 175 though too...

I agree with ETM, I think I like my Spark Burner bindings better than anything I can buy for my fixed board. I have some Diodes now, but only 3 days on them and even though I like them a lot, I am a bit worried about reliability.
I guess time will tell, but why can't Burton make a Diode that weighs a bit more and is tough ! The Diode actually rides just the way I like and is stiff enough, but I am not so concerned with the feather weight and it should be beefed up !
Burton does not seem to have anything like this in thier lineup that I can tell.

Ok, maybe the best solution yet. Buy a Spark Burner binding and then mount it to your regular board with this

Now we are talking,,,,,
