Nivek Oh I agree. If I want the press to look crazy I'll pull up the tip. However I'll argue the right way is balance. If your're using torque and pressure for your press, you are far less stable than when pressing by balance. And I think it tends to look sloppier on most riders too.

But this is more or less heresay, do what you find fun and I just wont care

I didn't say it makes you press better lol. I said it gives you added support, but I also said that added support is negligible.

By the way, some people do actually force the press. Some people do it with balancing and body position, others do it on softer boards by forcing the tip/tail up with their legs.

I mostly do it with body positioning, but I'll also lift my nose if I want it higher.

They aren't completely useless. They do provide more support for presses. It is just negligible. The biggest benefit from the wings in my opinion is the comfort.

Nivek Actually a comfortable and fun flex binding from B. Yeah though, don't forget they don't fit dual boa, wing hits the dial.

Advise though, look somewhere else unless you're getting a good deal. Better bindings can be had for less. Check Formulas, Forces, Deltas, or 390's. The Formulas (09/10) are probably the closest in feel. For 10/11, you might like the Hurrithanes, the Formulas are stiffer for 10/11.

hnz I love my infidels. The highback feels great, just remember it doesn't fit with dual-BOA. No idea about the weight.

Leo I tried the 2011 CobraSharks which have a wing design like the Infidels. I loved them. So much so that this long-time Burton bindings hater is going to pick up a pair of 2011 Burton Malativas (also a winged highback, but in EST) when they come out.

I felt that the wing supported my presses better. What I liked most was the comfort. I'm sure the Infidel is the same, but the Cobrasharks were nice and comfy

Hoons I was wondering about them too. Are they heavy? Does the high wing provide any advantage?
