I used to rock a t9 board but recently upgraded to k2 parkstar. But i still rock my t9 bindings on the k2. The one complaint i have with the bindings is the teeth on the ratchet system dont seem to last too long. Some people have said it just normal wear and tear but my foot started popping out after like 2 months of riding. But none the less, i still really like the bindings. Im thinking about upgrading them maybe next season. Dont know if it will be t9 again or not but we will see.

I had the Mark frak montoya pro bindings like six years ago(they were the first binding with the toe cap), they were good when new but like said above the ratchets wouldnt hold after a few months and i started blowing out of the bindings almost everytime i landed switch in pow. Keep in mind that i somehow destroy almost every binding i have either by riding or gorrilla tightening something with red threadlock.

We sell there boards

you really get a lot in the boards for half the price compared to stepchild lets say

You get features like Carbon stringers in a $400 board, burton your looking at $500+

I would say they are more towards jibbing and parks,but can be used for all mouton.

I think Flux were the ones to first make the toe cap strap.

In any case, I had 2 of the Coltier pro models a while back. Solid bindings, but the ratchets weren't as smooth as many of the other high end bindings out there. Plus in both bindings, I had the return springs in the bindings rust on me (something that my Fluxes never had an issue with) and I had to spray some silicone grease to get the latches working properly again.

I think it was T9 and Burton that were the first. Huge law suits back and forth for "who did it first."
Anyway, I have had 2 pairs of MFM Pro Bindings. My first pair were solid. (old Nuggets logo style). Sure they may have needed a little grease in the ratchets, but no big.
My second was also a MFM Pro (On Sale Technine Mfm Pro Snowboard Bindings Grey Mens 5 - Snowboards, Binding, Snowboarding Gear, Equipment tn1mfp24gr9). That one sucked. The teeth striped and actually one of the straps broke as I was strapping in for my first run. No toe cap for the rest of the day...
Now I ride Rome 390 Boss.

I would recommend the bindings, but with a heads up to the problems.

my buddy just bought a T9 Icon cause it has 2pac on it hahaha. he took it out to revy this weekend, loved it!! He's pretty new to snowboarding though, so I don't think he has much to base it on, I'm hoping to get a couple runs on it when we're out together next. But from what I can tell from their vids, they offer comparable tech to the bigger companies for a cheaper price. Their snowboarding vids are badass, even if their riders look like tools :P

If your board is in perfect condition at the end of the season, you're doing it wrong!

Which board I've ridden all their various camber profiles. Decks are super fun for a cheap price just not the most durable.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

Hahah, yup. Only watched one video of one of the riders. It was kind of...painful to watch in ways but there was nice riding.
