david_z really leaning towards these, I think I'll have REI order them in for me since none of the shops around here have them.

I can't decide between them either.

I'm itching between getting a pair, or Burton Cartels, or sticking with my K2 Uprises which don't fit my boot well.
I'm curious about this as well.

I'm a lifelong skateboarder and snowboarder, so the idea of a binding that creates a more skate-like feel definitely sounds cool.

But, on the other hand, I'm coming from a set of Ride bindings where the rachet buckle cracked on me, and these look like the buckle releases are plastic, and the frame is a one-piece unit that also looks like plastic (as opposed to bindings with a metal heel cup).

Also, the EVA-rubber base on the binding looks like it is attached at the toe and that's it - I put my boards on a roof rack on my car, generally upside down so the wind is deflected, and wouldn't like the EVA pad flapping out of my binding, potentially buffeted by the wind. Anyone know if it is secured?

I suppose some of these details - I'd expect more from a $220-$240 binding.

True, especially when you have great options across the price range from Flux, Union, Rome, Ride, etc... Guess we shall see...I'm intrigued. Could be like original BTX/rocker that I hated, or could be like MTX/RC/C2BTX that I loved from the get-go.

They dropped their price. No wonder, why would anyone buy it at $20 less than retail

I would have bought a pair if the discount was as much as they had DMCC Lights last year. At $20 less than MSRP shipped, I'll stick with the normal places
