The recall happened just to replace the cable with a piece thats like a 4 way flex point. Also if the cable did break the heel ladder would pop off. It wasn't a big deal, just some stupid ass gapers kept stepping on the toe strap pinching the cable till it broke. I rode these bindings a bunch, they're a cadillac comfort binding or a jibbers binding. Super cush, easy to use, and don't create pressure points.
