their top line models like the NXT's are killer bindings, but everything else seems to break with some frequency. I've had two pairs break on me, but they were cheap models.

NXT's or better, I say go for it

If it's under the M9 don't bother with it.

Agreed, I rocked the NXTs all last year and they were an awesome binding. Although they sustained a minimal amount of damage when a tree jumped out in front of me @ Jay but we won't talk about that.

NO! don't buy under any circumstances, worst bindings ever created. Jandals and nails will create better bindings.

Don't get them if they're plastic. My friend had some low-end flows and they would just fall off.
