I believe those bindings caught on in the late 90s and were gone by 2002 or so. 4x4 mounting holes my best guess is 2000.

Yeah I had a pair of Kemper bindings with similar highbacks and ratchets, but they had standard plastic baseplates, and those were purchased in the early 2000s

You'll probably like newer equipment a lot better, but if you enjoy riding what you've got I wouldn't go rushing out to change it...

I remember when baseless was the shit!! Yeah mid to late 90s, somewhere around there. Am I wrong, but I thought you used to have to custom drill your board for baseless bindings back in the day? Am I dreaming or thinking of something else? I just remember that once you set your stance you were kind of stuck with it, unless I'm thinking of a certain brand or something else? That was a long time ago.. Now I feel old.

I've got 1995 base binding in my basement (built March 1994) and they have the old diamond-shaped logo. According to the logo in this brochure, the bindings are most likely 1996.

I just took the board out two times this week and I think the board is shot I have about 3 inches of my edge sticking out. And I can't carve I will most likeley keep my bindings but I like how my board is extremely flexible and can't seem to find new boards this flexible

You will most likely not find another board that have enough inserts to accomodate these bindings, unless you buy something in the same years...

Although not a good idea, you could probably fit them on a Burton channel board...
