My biggest problem with Cinch is that toe strap is typically fixed. Great for getting in cause it doesn't migrate. But even maxed out in the adjustment you do not get enought toe overhang on the binding to properly leverage your edges. This is not a problem with any flow.

I'd get last years Essence if you really wanna save money. However the upgrades for this year are phenomenal. Those real ratchets are great. You can still get out and back in like a regular binding with last years using the mini ratchtes, but he full ratchets on this years are just that much better.

I have the 09/10 K2s (I think) and the toe strap is adjustable. Both in length, and in position (toe or top) did they change that?

I just can't...

Those are the days when you never stop...you piss in the woods if you have to because stopping at the restroom is out of the question...and skip a good run to get first in line for the next chair to open....


OOOOOoooooo are we there yet?

Yea I tend to share about 1\2 my powder days with the girlfriend and it turns me into an instant A-Hole. I get frustrated by her doing simple shit like taking off her glove off at the top to adjust her bindings and I'm like "WTF are you DOING?!?!?!?" then I choose take her into terrain that's slightly above her head(how else is she gonna learn) and then I get frustrated again waiting for her at the bottom of a gnarly\deep section!

Yeah you essentially want your toe ramp to sit just about where your toes sprout from the ball of your foot for proper leverage. I've never worked with a Cinch that could accommodate that.

you want the end of the toe ramp to be just past the ball of your foot? where do you want the end of the heal ramp to be then?

not sure I got this...you can slide the toe ramp (or base) forward. by ramp I mean where (end part of) the boot is sitting. I thought you were talking about toe straps before?
