Just got the '10 AT FSE and set them up. They're much more annoying to set up then the 09 ATs.
Took me roughly 45 mins to an hour to get everything set up the way I wanted. On the 09s to move the highback/cable forward and aft you just had to loosen two screws and slide the whole assembly. On the 10's you have to undo 6 screws and move them to another set of drilled holes along with their matching plastic washers which are unidirectional. (This was probably done to save weight as its only annoying this one time I want to set them up).
The fact that there are only two Jr ratchets instead of four mini ratchets provide a more constant feel if you ever do undo the ratchets and is faster to set them up then the four minis. However with the four mini ratchets it was very simple to remove the entire power strap which made adjusting the bindings much easier to do.
The ratchets are simpler to use then the mini ratchets out of the box. After having the 09s for over a year I've figured out how they work but when I was new there were times when i struggled to loosen them.
If anyones interested I can post a review on sunday of how the 09 NXT ATs compare to the 10 NXT AT FSE when ridden back to back. Won't be a direct comparison thou as the FSE are mounted to a Evo-R and the ATs are on a Heritage. I'm also assuming that Sat morning will be powdery and after lunch when the powders been tracked out I'm going to hit up the park.
