I would have bought a pair if the discount was as much as they had DMCC Lights last year. At $20 less than MSRP shipped, I'll stick with the normal places

Read every review written, watched all the videos I could find, and now I'm pretty much set on picking up a pair of these. Really just a matter of deciding which color and whether to put them on my Gnu Rider's Choice PTX or NS Cobra...

They dropped their price. No wonder, why would anyone buy it at $20 less than retail

When they go down to $200, I'll think about buying them to test them out. Not a knock against the company but it's hard to spend that on new bindings before the proliferation of feedback sets in from this year's continued use.

True, especially when you have great options across the price range from Flux, Union, Rome, Ride, etc... Guess we shall see...I'm intrigued. Could be like original BTX/rocker that I hated, or could be like MTX/RC/C2BTX that I loved from the get-go.

I've yet to see a bad review. BA liked them, a few on here have liked them, even those crazies over at EL have a review up (someone tried them) and liked them.

My only concern is durability, as I know they've tested them, but will they hold up over a full season in production form.

I'm itching between getting a pair, or Burton Cartels, or sticking with my K2 Uprises which don't fit my boot well.

I'm curious about this as well.

I'm a lifelong skateboarder and snowboarder, so the idea of a binding that creates a more skate-like feel definitely sounds cool.

But, on the other hand, I'm coming from a set of Ride bindings where the rachet buckle cracked on me, and these look like the buckle releases are plastic, and the frame is a one-piece unit that also looks like plastic (as opposed to bindings with a metal heel cup).

Also, the EVA-rubber base on the binding looks like it is attached at the toe and that's it - I put my boards on a roof rack on my car, generally upside down so the wind is deflected, and wouldn't like the EVA pad flapping out of my binding, potentially buffeted by the wind. Anyone know if it is secured?

I suppose some of these details - I'd expect more from a $220-$240 binding.

I can't decide between them either.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!
