I have owned a few pairs of t9's. Had a pair of the Chris Coultar one's from 06 , then some mass appeals and then bought some Baller series last year.
Safe to say that technine bindins have gotten worse each year since then ot rid of the plastic base and started using shite rubbercoated aluminium. The ladders suck balls on the new one's. And the highbacks are way to stiff and wayyy to chunky. The balitmore toe strap sucks now too.
The old Technines where a sick binding , no doubt but sorry t9 I think more emphasis needs to be put on binding development than marketing
