Trying to get some feedback. What do you guys think of this invention I made?
Snowboard binding Quick Flip Technology (Patent Pending!) - YouTube

(Sorry for originally posting in binding reviews and leaving that thread there. If someone tells me how to delete a thread, I will delete that one)

I like your idea and as said before glad to see a younger person taking some design, engineering and imagination to make a go and several prototypes.
Kudo's there !!!! I like Flows that said I think your design has promise. I have no vested interest of the inside working of this sport.

few questions:
  • Are you making these to just replace the ladder strap on "all" bindings?
  • The hook strap, that is just a rapid prototype for testing right? As it seems quite bulky if the newer part is going to follow that design.
  • What material is the loop part going to be made of for strength. As that big loop just isn't aesthetically pleasing
  • Are you making this for the toe cap as well if not what real time or convenience saving is there since you still need to ratchet the toe?
  • Big concern for me is that black hook. How durable is that? If the hook is weak and breaks not good. If the hook wears out the base part where it hooks to is also a weak point I would believe.
  • I know it's very early but Price Point $50 kinda steep, $20 maybe not much profit .....

Again nice job and hope it works out. Very impressed with your attempts and willingness to put your passion into a working prototype. Just pointing out some of the issues I see not bashing your attempts !!!!
I would try them
Good Luck !!!
