I tried out a friend's board with Contrbands on them in the park and ABSOLUTELY loved them. The only thing you need to watch out for with them is the fitting. Some boots are too wide and don't fit well into them. So, if you plan on getting them, take your boots into the shop and make sure your boots fit whatever size you get. They really are great park bindings and I'd highly recommend them, as unconventional as they may be.
