|readimag||I own the now ipo's and the holograms and both are good at what they do. In the park the halograms just own and allow for all that side to side flex you want but are still stiff edge to edge. If I am off trail I like my ipo's more as it has that longboard skate feel for me. I ride the holograms on my evo and the nows on my heritage and blacklist and could not be happier with both bindings. That being said if you hate have that lose feeling in your bindings normally you will not like both of these bindings.|

I demoed the Now IPO and love the feel of the bindings; all prior positive comments are justified. Plus the foam footbed is soft enough that canting is not an issue. An unexpected plus is the minimized base; it cuts the chatter from the board and the king pin also allows the board to pivot while cruising on rough hardpack man made cover. For those that are worried about the King Pin, I rarely noticed it while riding but can feel it when standing around or while waiting in the lift line.
In addition, I was able to find the Salomon Hologram used on ebay and bought them. With the Now IPO on the NS Heritage; I mounted the binding on my Proto. The Hologam is not as damp and I feel every nuance (some people will like this), but I prefer the Rome 390 Boss on my Proto. Surprisingly, the Hologram can be very stiff if the ankle strap is tight; will try both IPO and Hologram on my old Morrow Blaze (replace my Ride CAD).
Hope this helps anyone in the market for either.

|Nito||Agree with Trip. I spoke with a shop owner and he said, he's avoiding the Shadow Fit tech because of the Relay. Many of the Online Store also have limited quantity but this maybe due to last year's poor season and cutting back on supply.|

|Sassicaia||I picked up a pair of IPOs today, and while I cant complain on the performance because the conditions are balls i gotta say that the mini tape measure it came with was a nice touch. Useful, thoughtful and costs nothing. Makes you wonder why more manufactures don't through one in. It also came with a strap which im assuming is something strap your board to your pants?! Not sure since I have never used one, but I have heard some mountains require them so its worth keeping handy just in case.|

|Nivek||Your ability to twist the board wont be noticeably effected. The rockering is about 2mm at the most. Just enough to create the steering effect. It really isnt noticeable motion. Just a noticeable differrence in response.|

Thanks for the comment Binary!
Yes, I'm definitely more of a freerider but moving to do more freestyle with the advent of hybrid camber.
Thanks again Nito
