What is up with Now bindings
 
Ok so today I got a killer deal on some Union Atlas. I love them and I am an Union Fan all the way. But while I was in the shop the worker showed me some new bindings called NOW. From what I understand is the base plate is on a hinge almost like a skateboard truck. Crazy looking binding man. Anyone know what these are about? Anyone ever ride on them? Do tell what you know about these.

This is a pretty good review here: 2013 Now IPO Binding Used and Reviewed I am definitely interested in them but I want to see what people have to say about putting a whole season on them first.

They work. Gives you control under each foot. Foot steer your deck like a skateboard. Fantastic for a first year product.

Does the hinge affect response time?

I'd imagine that the binding moving like it does would increase response time and make your board more sluggish when carving.

It increases performance.

It honestly makes your edge to edge a lot better in my opinion. I was noticing more snap out of my ankles when popping off my toe edge to do back 1's.

Nivek and angry,

Will either of you be riding these regularly this year? Are they up there with your favorite bindings?

Does it make you prone to catching an edge when you're steering w/ your feet alone? I imagine it would be easy to get lazy.

I just got mine in. Prob won't bust them out right away though. Gonna try the K2 Formulas first.

Up there with my favorites for sure, I WOULD make them a daily but I'm getting Salomons and Flows (maybe K2's) for free, so I'm not about to spend near $300 on bindings I don't REALLY need.
