bobsy852 Are these bindings more reliable these days? I'm looking at the 2012 models after my local snowboarding shop told me they would be a much better choice than the K2 Cinch CTX's which I was looking at getting. I like the look of both, and think the Ride's feel lighter, and are apparently a better ride although I've not been able to compare on a board so hoping someone could help suggest if the 2012 ones are reliable and better than K2 Cinch's!

Thanks

jiggydancer I can't wait for the 2010's to come out. The cambered footbed is just what I need for my wide stance. I might even be able to go wider w/ those.

Yeah, completely on opposite ends of the spectrum, but I just let sleeping dogs lie.

If they were $50, I would've picked up a pair to try as well.

Not only were they not letting me ride, but i had a couple pieces of hardware bust on me while adjusting them. The SPi's are way better period. Way stronger and alot easier to adjust. I cant even feel them when riding. I recommend those still.
Sad to hear that you didn't get a chance to ride them. The thing about these bindings are that you really need to know what you're doing to get them dialed in properly. Sadly, not all shop employees know what they were doing, so maybe it didn't get dialed in as properly as possible. No matter, you found a pair of bindings you like, so .
