Default Tech Nine MFM pro series bindings?

anyone riding on these bindings...i was about to pick up a pair and i read some pretty terrible reviews with hardware coming loose etc etc. im an all mountain rider focusing mostly on jumps but also rails/boxes etc etc. so question is good choice in a binding im getting a good deal on them for about 130 shipped and i see retail is 270.. any and all feedback would be great

These were on Brociety about an hour ago. The reviews were absolute shit though. No personal experience, just second hand info, but keep your eye on that site though if you really want these things

130 shipped imo isn't a deal for technine bindings. the ratchets suck, the hardware rusts and once they do you can forget about adjusting the bindings cuz the adjustment pieces will just break off, overall the quality is just not up to par compared to all the other bindings in that price range. this is from personal experience, ive had the technine coulter pros and technine icons. stay away from t9 til they get their shit together.

Just checked out the a few technine bindings today and they were horrible. I was trying on boots and grabbed a few different bindings to see how they fit and the technines were the worst quality binding I've ever seen. Plastic ratchets!!! the ladders were so cheap they bent when I started tightening them and each time they bent the teeth would skip. I stripped one right there in the shop. Stay away from technine.

I would stay away from Technine. I had the 08 MFM Pro's and at first I was impressed by them. During the year I used them the screw that holds the toe cap came off twice, fortunately it was AFTER I got off the lift. Speaking of the toe cap, T9's are big and bulky and don't conform well to your boot. Because they are so big the get shredded up fast. The last thing I noticed before I got rid of them was that the frame was slightly bent. Use your $130 for Union Forces or spend a bit more for Burton Cartel's or Ride Delta's.

i have used some technine icons and i can atest that the ladders are very soft and bend when you tighten them and so your teeth skip, hard to get em tight. however once you get em tight they are very comfy, but i would spend your money elsewhere

i just got last years mfm pros at the begining of the season.. i was so pumped to get them.... then i got them. they were cool at first and i like the feel of them def good for like jibbing and what not because they have a nice forgiving feel to them. but after a while i couldn't stand having my straps slipping and whatnot. i do however love the toe cap and the highbacks.

today on the other hand.. i got some union forces. the buckles are amazing no slipping. they are mad comfy. so snug on the boot. prob best bindings ever. only problem, no toe cap. but what i do plan on doing is rigging my mfm toe cap onto the forces. hope it works out because putting the forces strap over the toe is just weird for me for some reason. def get some forces or some contacts or just any unions in general.

Technine makes some nice boards, but when it comes to bindings they make shit. Trust me, I had the mass appeals for a two weeks before i sold them. They start off awesome on the first day, but the next time u go they will fall apart. I lost a toe cap and two screws on my second day riding them. I've switched over to Unions and absolutely love them and recommend them

It's too bad because I remember 4-5 years ago everyone had technines and they had a lifetime warranty. I had the Team 2's and they were solid. The toe ladders started stripping out after about 2 years so I warranteed them and they sent me a whole new set of toe straps. I thought at the time, with a few small improvements, they'd be the best bindings on the market. Guess I couldnt have been more wrong.
