I have the prophecy bindings on my SL and I really like them, it really lets you have a great amount of control over the torsional flex of the board. They are a mid-stiff binding, so they match up to the board pretty well. The only thing I hate about burton bindings is you can't get a canted footbed for them in a non-est binding, I really hate that they are doing that. The straps are pretty comfy on these, which was a pleasant feeling over the rental bindings I was using on rental boards in the past. I had considered the flow nxt-at, union force, ride spi, rome targas, and ride contraband optimo(i think that's the one) when I was buying bindings. If I didn't get the prophecy bindings, I probably would have went with targas or forces.
