Wasn't impressed with first impressions

I haven't riden these bindings because I returned them as soon as I took one out of the box. I wanted to replace my union forces for the sole reason that I don't like the toe strap. The burtons, while extreme light, and I mean REALLY REALLY LIGHT, felt very flimsy and cheap. Especially compared to the unions. Im not sure if I'm a fan of the hammock idea either but aside from speculation and feeling them I can't comment on their performance. There was a major design flaw that I can't believe burton even let get to production on these bindings. If you want to set any forward lean, you have to move the high-back all the way back to the closest position to the heel loop, otherwise the adjusting stopper gets jammed between the high-back and heel loop. After moving the highback back to this position I also noticed that when I folded it down, the screws which secured the highjack into place would turn and wiggle. Also the ratchets on my unions feel much more solid. I am going to stick with my forces I think and maybe swap out the toe strap,

So you didn't like the way they looked without even trying them? I'm sorry, but your review doesn't help at all!

Cartels. if you want some thing battle tested. Or, don't judge, forum shakas. i own both. cartels lighter. forums tougher, and my preferred. and i agree w/ Nar. you didn't even strap in.
