Thumbs up Should I pull the trigger?

Hey guys, I need your advice on something. Someone I know is hooking me up with a brand new pair of Burton Diode 2013 EST's for $320.25. My current board is a Burton Custom x 2013 (which I got for 425!!!). I just get these deals at jiffybutler, no big deal. Anyways, should I pull the trigger and get these bad boys? Or settle for something else? It has to be an EST binding so burton bindings only. I'm an aggressive carver and am advanced at snowboarding. I'm competing in a boardercross race soon too. I don't go to the park, just some 10ft kickers occasionally. So should I get them? Thanks in advance for your input.

I won't recommend any given product for purchasing.
I make the thing that your asking about but i won't validate why you should or should buy it. What I or anyone else makes is yours to validate why or why not to purchase anything.

I will only speak in facts about products but not make any recommendations other than sizing or compatibility.

If you want certain bindings, buy them. If not, don't.
The internet can't brush your teeth for you; certain things you need to decide and do own your own for the reasons that you choose.
None of us are you.

I have the 2012 Reflex Diodes, mounted on a TRice Pro HP.
Couldn't be happier with them.

Stop calling them "bad boys" though.

Hahaha okay ... Thanks for your input. I got them! Can you tell me about your riding style and how many times you've been out with them? Do you take care of them real good? Any other tips on preserving them? Thanks!

Tips on preserving them / taking care of them real good are as follows:
1. Fold down rear highback when getting on the lift.
2. Tighten all screws regularly.
3. Avoid stepping on the straps.

literally advice anyone would give for all bindings made in the last 30 years.

If you're buying those, you want a very responsive binding for maximum board control. Great for quick turns and hard charging, especially on a powerful board.

I'm sure "BurtonBindings" can help more with this question since he designs these things.

Not sure about preserving them. I just make sure they're clean and dry before storing for the off season. Ride the hell out of them otherwise!
