Don't get SPi's if you spend any time in the park. Deltas will rip park and all mountain. I have 4 different sets of Ride bindings and the only ones that I have ever had ratchet issues on were a pair of LXs from way back. I think all of their straps are pretty comfy too. My only complaint is that they don't have any asym straps on their binders...

Rome stuff is legit too as King mentioned. If you are looking for aluminum baseplates, these are the two companies to look at.

I used to be a loyal Flow user (nearly a decade) but recently switched to Ride for the canted footbeds. Canting makes a world of difference for me... no more foot pain and less leg fatigue. I use 2010 Contrbands for my freestyle board and 2010 NRCs for my freeride board. Love both bindings.

Nope. Wedgie Beds started in 2009-2010 (1.5 on the EX, 2.5 on the Delta and Contraband, 3.0 on the RX/SPI, 2.5 and 4.0 on the Alpha and Nitrane, and any angle you want on NRC and CAD).

My gripes are:
1. Sticky ratchets
2. The design of the screw attachment point for the footbed is idiotic. The screw is fixed in position on the removable footbed and to attach it the the baseplate you have to blindly find the threaded receiving nut, which is mobile. In other words, you can't see it and you can't feel it. You just have to get lucky and hope the pieces line up and the threads find purchase. It's frustrating and deters me from wanting to adjust or remove my bindings.*

*this is the primary reason why I replaced my SPi's with K2 Formulas
I agree with gripe 2 100%
