I am wondering about the ringed thing you are talking about. My old board has a visible ring, but it looks like something left from the bindings being there for so long. It doesn't look indented at all. I am assuming the ring thing you are talking about is something different?
There's two types just dirt or faded rings on the top sheet just from the bindings being on for a long period which will most likely happen. But the rings i'm talking about are actual indents you can feel from the stress of it being mounted so tight.

Canadiankite you sure you have the model right? Formula for $150? The Indy is listed at the price you mentioned.
Either way, $180 (roughly) is still a good deal for the binding. I am happy with it.

See for yourself...

If the price is actually different from the website, maybe your local store has permission to discount further for whatever reason (slow sales). Lucky you if that's the case.

Anyone own K2 bindings? I would hate for my pretty new board to get destroyed by bindings!

That's interesting maybe just a k2 hater? ive seen plenty of different base plates and most of k2's you wouldn't be able to tell the difference from any other brand. Any base plate that's mounted so tight will damage your board and give you that "ring" look.

Stanley_95 Do you know how i can post a blog theres nothing on the side saying i cant do it.

Canadiankite ya, not sure last years had the 3 degree cant footbed to reduce joint strain. After some more research (and posting on here), the cant sounds like a good thing for me. Plus, for another $30, I am liking the new highback, and the padding seems better for my boot.

Thanks for the tip though.
