Nice review surr3a1. It's nice to hear about the new models.

I've had problems with the toe strap coming loose, but mine are last year's model.

Sorry for sounding all over the place.

I thought it seemed strange that the Merc would feel more poppy than my Alibi. I'm not a very weak guy but I'm not a powerhouse either so you could be...

I agree that you shouldn't have to use zip ties. That is really disappointing to me. Works great though and makes the bindings much better. My toe caps haven't moved since I did this so I'm not...

Here is what I did to get the toe cap dialed in.

Strap in, make the toe cap as tight as it can be with your boot in the binding. Take your boot out and make it tighter by one or two on each side....

Wow. On the hill at 3! That's cool.

I can imagine the advantage someone who starts so young would have over someone who starts in their 20's like I did. Their ceiling will be much higher.

Good luck!

30 started at about 22 or 23. I tore my LCL at about 25 and it took me a couple of years to get it fixed. I couldn't snowboard during that time :mad:.

Those of you with kids, when...

The Mod Rocker and the Machete both look like just what I am looking for. Hopefully one of them will be available for demo.
