Sure, the MC's are light. But the Diode, 10oz lighter AND still stiffer, is comparable to the Chargers. The X-Base, which is lighter than the Diode, is the more fair match to the Force MC. Anyone have their weight?

fuck diodes. My last highback that burton will supply is already cracking. If you buy diodes knowing how weak they are must have too much money.
Light weight means nothing when they break every 15 days or so.

That's why light weight and stiff shouldn't really be together. I'd rather have light weight and durable or stiff and moderate weight.

Default Weight of Factory bindings

The main goal of the Charger isn't to be lightweight (that's still a light binding). The direction of the Charger is response.

Check out the 13/14 Contact Pro - 700 grams with the mini disk. $219 USD

What is the weight of the 13/14 Factory's?

Might try them if they are semi-light weight. I have 12/13 Chargers and am a huge fan. Didn't care for the Forces from few years back and returned the Atlases I ordered online last year before even riding in them because I could tell they were still not quite as responsive as I wanted.

Maybe the Factorys fit the gap between Chargers and Atlases concerning weight and response?

Factory is indeed between the Charger and Atlas in terms of response.

For weight there is no discernible difference between any of these bindings once they are mounted (let alone when riding them).

I am still very interested in what the weight is even if it is trivial to most.

The gear nerd in me wants to know anyways but I am actually not concerned with weight while riding. I have a left knee/ankle on-going injury from a rock climbing fall several years ago. I had to take 1.5 seasons off due to it and the lighter I keep my board the less stress is placed on it riding chairlifts, skating around, etc. and I can ride longer without throbbing pain starting.

I would think that your binding weight would be the last thing you look at since the board weighs twice, thrice, as much? Do you already have some insanely light board to begin with?
Just wondering.
