So I just got a pair of Now's and rode them for the first time today.

I dont know if it was mental or if it was the bindings but I never felt like I had as much control before. I probably had my best day riding of the year. The pivot is super subtle which I dont think people who havnt ridden them realize.

On a negative note im not a huge fan of the ratchets but whatever they get the job done.

Anyone notice a substantial difference in the softer or the medium (green) pads? I wanted to change mine on the hill, but kind of pain in the ass. Curious if anyone noticed a difference in feel....

I notice the difference.. I like both the green and the white ones, the white do feel even softer.

Would the medium size with 10.5 Burton ruler boots shrinkage tech be too small for me or would i need a large?

Saw two boards side by side at après yesterday with the two different orange/white 2014 color schemes NOW bindings. Anybody know when they'll be available?

Jeremy Jones supposedly has a pro-model coming with a higher highback too, but I couldn't find anything online about it.

I really wish they had canted footbeds, going to try demo'ing them soon either way.

i have mediums with a size 10 32 boot and its a really tight fit. I'd say the large would be better

I normally insist on canted footbeds. With the amount of cushioning and how they ride canting isnt needed.

I talked to them on the phone a couple of weeks ago when I was getting new ladders. The new higher back and the no back or more of a inch added to the no back are the biggest changes. From all the testing I have heard the new super lo back is awesome. I am sure BA will have a report soon about them.

Anybody try them on a stiff positive camber board; i.e. Burton Custom X? They work great on my NS Heritage but not sure of the soft highback on a stiff camber board.
