Default Has anyone used the K2 Cinch Bindings?

Ok well I am a huge K2 fan lol. Anyway this summer I am getting a new set up (as you may have seen). I am wondering if anyone here has used the K2 Cinch Bindings and which ones you used. If you have what did you think of them...any good?

I ride pretty much everything and am planning on getting a K2 Darkstar and the Cinch's look pretty nice in theory. So, are they any good?

Used the lower end model a few times on someone else's board. They were heavy, the ratchets felt quite cheap (plastic, broke one), and the highbacks were a struggle to lock in place. I haven't used Flows so I can't really compare but I wasn't a fan of the Cinch. I could strap in conventional bindings quicker than I could the Cinchs but maybe I'm weird.

I saw someone with Cinches for the first time on the mountain yesterday. Looked easy enough to get into; step foot in, pull up. Obviously I can't comment on durability.

Damn do your remember which ones they were? I plan on searching around some more for reviews, etc but from what i've read it sounds like I am going to stick with some 390's.

Having played around this with them (from this season and the previous ones) in the store, I'd def pass on those. If you really want that style, go with one of the high-end Flows.

In case you were still wondering: the low end model, the Cinch CTC I think.
