dcpowpow I just returned from Haines AK and I was using my Burton 12/13 Diodes on a Never Summer Premier F1 size 168cm.
Bindings were solid and no failures luckily. I always watched the guide as he loaded my board in and out of the bin on the side of the heli as skis and boards were palced on top. I worry about the Carbon high back, but the buckles never iced and the bindigns performed awesome up there. So far they appear to be tough as long as you don't just abuse them.
We got 3 bluebird days of steep and deep lines after 3 days of storms, then left when more weather came in.. Typical AK..
I am going to stick with this binding for the remainder of this season and next. Any long term results I will post.

Sorry dc-- I some how missed your post.

The base plates have a lifetime warranty, I got my replacements from burton.

Only one pair to replace what was broken. The more on the way was in reference to the heel cup stickers. I had a pair on the way before I noticed the broken base plates.

End result is burton sent me 12/13 bindings with updated highback. Arriving today by 3 pm.

Not sure if I'm going to keep them or not.

It's funny.... they can't be more than 1/8" thick but on that diode high back I bet it makes a difference.

ETM example

10 A5 Eva Foam Sticker Sheets Brand New SEALED | eBay

ETM Sorry EVA is what I meant. I get it from a local rubber store we have out here in small sheets and cut bits off to get my boots fitting properly around my heels.
I reckon some 3mm (1/8) EVA sheet would work sensationally.

The stickers are more for protection of the highback I think but when they arent there it makes a noticable difference to the forward lean.

You just need a new sticker everytime you replace the highback but at least the forward lean isnt changing halfway through the day when the sticker drops off.

ETM Strength wise it wont change a thing and it shouldnt cause the highback to crack any faster than it already will, you might find the highback starts cutting into you boot though.
You could always get a sheet of stick on pva and stick your own padding on, without the holes ice wont stick to it.
