The highback does feel flimsy. It reminds me of the highback that Burton used on the older Triads. Lots of people loved that binding (including myself), but that highback was infamous for breaking. Now, I've had a pair of Triads on my Charlie Slasher for a couple of seasons with no issues, but then again, they were a $50 CL pickup, not a $300+ retail buy. Burton isn't a stupid company and they have to know that the Triad highback wasn't durable and I'm sure they wouldn't make the same mistake twice.
