now we are talking about the 09's right...because i read tons of reviews and heard the 08's were garbage and the 09's were a BIG step up converting to all leather and fiberglass no plastic ratchets anymore? the only thing i heard was u should swap out the tech nine bolts for some standard steel ones from a hardware store because they have come loose

Def the 09's...couldn't believe how bad they were. Huge disappointment because I actaully like the look of them.

i have a pair of the 08 MFM pros and they are super comfy but definitely had lots of problems with them, bolts didnt come loctited and would fall out, some would break, the straps tore up like crazy too. i know the 09s are MUCH better but im not sure if they still have some problems. i now have a pair of 2010 technine team bindings and i like them a lot. they are super comfy and really well constructed and easily adjustable with a lot of options to get them just right. the only complaint i have is that the ratchets could use some work, sometimes they just dont wanna get that one last click you need haha. if you like them i would say go for em, technine definitely makes nice stuff, just like any other brand they went through some trial and error before they got it dialed in

You really need to try some other brands and see what much better really is.

ive ridden burton, ride and flux bindings. burtons are shit, nothing good about them at all. rides were ok but had lots of problems with the ratchets getting stuck, and ive seen that happen to other people too. the fluxes were nice, i would buy another pair of those. ive been wanting to demo a pair of unions cause i hear good things about them

yeah i replaced all the T bolts on the straps with some from a hardware store for mad cheap. get the blue loctite and do all the smaller bolts. the highback bolts are the ones i had problems with, but with loctite theyll be fine. the bigger bolts for the heelcup you dont need to worry about. hope this helps and lemme know if you have anymore questions about them

I haven't really had any trouble with my technine bindings. They fit my boots good and they have held up so far on my many falls lol.

You have not been riding enough then cuz i bent those frames easily lol. Prob the worst bindings i have tried to be honest. They were last years models but i see kids with broken t9 bindings in the park all the time so i doubt they changed.

Coming back from flows to strap in bindings the technine mfm pros were my first bindings... They looked really good online and on paper but when I got them it was a different story.. The high back is made of a cheap plastic and broke on me within a few days.. I had to mod it and make it stronger... then the toe caps are made of a cheap leatherette material that started peeling after like 4 days of riding..

I wouldn't recommend these to anyone that has money to spend on bindings..
