I hear you. Another binding I've been eyeing lately is the Drake Mentor. Convertible strap, durable, and the price isn't all that bad on them either considering it's a high end binding.

flippin unions, i would say noone uses more quality, magnesium buckles, cnc machined heecups, zytel glass base with lifetime warrany, urethane bushings between base and board (to help with board feel and flex).

The highback is adjustable for forward lean as well as rotation so that it is parallel with the heel edge. It also has an adjustable toe plate fit your size boot. It also comes standard with a toe cap strap to securely hold in the boot. Great performance binding without crushing your foot."

wtf? are you a noob? theyre clunky heavy made in a sweatshop in portugeze and suck fat whale chode. no burton bindings i tell everyone NONE! they come in and i turn them right into the rides and the romes. def the romes buddy theyre the elite last year this year and for years to come. story behind rome. 2 burton techs quit and made rome because they didnt like how burton was running the business and now theyre owning the shit out of the snowboarding industry. rome everything rome rome rome, and i ride a forum and ride bindings but next year its def rome bindings and maybe a rome board in the mix MAYBE!

That being said, when you demo'ed the burton's, did the forward lean adjustment screw keep backing off? not that it'd spin around completely, but even just 1/4 turn?... mine does for some odd reason, and its a bit of a pain, but other than that its no worries...

ps. I'll buy ur ride's off ya
romes and rides are as light and have toestrap caps tard and theyre way better and way more comftorble and have a better warranty although you dont need it because in time your cartel highbacks and the custom highbacks crack. number 1 customer complaint!

I own the cartels and theyre fine for me. theyre 08s so idk where ur coming from.
and the plastic or cf high back materials are basically universal on all bindings.
I was looking for where the "number one complaint" was about cartel/custom high backs cracking?
Also, is any of this truth or burton-hating?
