I love how my heel fits in the heel cup.
Damping... holy awesome comfy.

Cons:
The highback isn't adjustable at all other than forward lean.
The ratchets aren't as nice as burton's.
No toe ramp adjustment.

The big thing here. My Ions, SLX, and Driver X in size 9.5 all fit very snuggly into the heel cup and thus I get no lag toe or heel side. I always feel like burton ride a little loser. Even with adjustments.
Thanks

How would you rate response compared to cartels?

I can see your heel fits these better but does that comment refer to overall response?

I rock size 11s so I will need Large.

How about weight? Not a big deal but all the same how do they compare to cartels?

I ride 70% pow so dampening is not my main priority. I like to feel the snow as much as possible. Dampening is fine as long as it doesn't kill the feedback and feel from the powder.

Now that more of you dudes have riding time on these bindings, whats the word on foot/leg fatigue?
Better or no different than standard bindings?

I think it's a bit better for both, not huge difference for me, but some. I still wish they were canted a bit.

On another note...got an email back from NOW and they are sending me some new ladders, they also said they are aware of the issue with the ladders and are working on improvements for next season. Sounds good to me.

Well I went and checked the ladders on both sets of my IPOs and they all show some signs of wear. Not nearly what I've seen from the previous poster.

I also have a set of Karakoram's coming in the next few days and since they share the same ladders I imagine I'll see the same wear.

I think I'll be ordering a bunch of extra ladders since all of my bindings will be able to use them.

I do love these bindings though more and more all the time... I almost want to buy a second pair for my other board.

this is how my straps look. im going to the store I bought them from this week to see what they say.

I inquired and JF sent this note over. Sounds like they are fixing it for this season not next season - good news!

This JF Pelchat the inventor and Owner of NOW, thanks for reaching out. We are aware of this issue and we are making new parts (ankle and toe ladders) with new design and material that will be available for all NOW customer for warranty as of February so you don't have to worry about it, we have your back.
