Just took mine out to inspect after my trip to Utah and you can see on the one binding the orange is starting to peel off from scraping ice with the ratchet.

Also included a pic of the prophecy foot pad. No issues with those. And like I mentioned before they're lighter.

Thinking of just taking a heat gun and taking all the orange material off, leaving just the high back with no padding.
Does anyone see any disadvantage to that?

I have my forward lean at F1, which isn't that aggressive. I was actually thinking of dialing the lean back just a bit. We were doing mile long traverses on very skinny skier made tracks, and I was starting to get some pain in my calf. Boots could have been too tight though also. Stiff boots dialed to the hilt- snowbird ya know.

Strength wise it wont change a thing and it shouldnt cause the highback to crack any faster than it already will, you might find the highback starts cutting into you boot though.
You could always get a sheet of stick on pva and stick your own padding on, without the holes ice wont stick to it.

Also I just put about 40 days on mine in japan and the sticker pads didnt fall off. I stuck them to the highback instead of the chassis and it seems to have fixed that problem. You just need a new sticker everytime you replace the highback but at least the forward lean isnt changing halfway through the day when the sticker drops off.

Great suggestions on both stickers and high back rubber.

What kind of rubber is PVA and where can you get it?

I just got new frames since both my others were cracked, and they came with new stickers, but I'm sure they'll fall off. Fortunately I ordered two more that I have stashed away.

It's funny.... they can't be more than 1/8" thick but on that diode high back I bet it makes a difference.

Sorry EVA is what I meant. I get it from a local rubber store we have out here in small sheets and cut bits off to get my boots fitting properly around my heels.
I reckon some 3mm (1/8) EVA sheet would work sensationally.

The stickers are more for protection of the highback I think but when they arent there it makes a noticable difference to the forward lean.

You say you ordered new frames and have more on the way, where did you order these ?

Sorry dc-- I some how missed your post.

The base plates have a lifetime warranty, I got my replacements from burton.

Only one pair to replace what was broken. The more on the way was in reference to the heel cup stickers. I had a pair on the way before I noticed the broken base plates.

End result is burton sent me 12/13 bindings with updated highback. Arriving today by 3 pm.

Not sure if I'm going to keep them or not.
