Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these bindings after my husband coerced me into it. I really wasn't sure it would be worth the money since I had just bought new bindings 2 seasons ago and they were still working great. He brought it up so many times that I finally just bought them for this year to go with my new board (Capita Birds of a Feather).

Wow. These bindings are amazing. I wasn't sure what to think. I didn't know how much different they would feel with the skate technology. I worried I wouldn't have enough control when transitioning edges or wanting my board to be responsive.

The first couple runs I really couldn't tell a difference. They were smooth for sure, but they didn't seem dramatically different. Then, I got into deeper powder and then choppy, beat up runs and it was amazing. I barely felt the chatter on the runs! Between my awesome board and these amazing bindings, riding bumpy, choppy snow was no big deal. I'm now a believer!

Every time someone asks my husband what to buy - he always mentions Now bindings 100%. I can understand why and will be the next promoter of them.

I originally bought a Small, but returned them for a Medium. I wear Nike boots, size 9. They fit in the smalls, but it was pretty snug and the boots looked like they went far over the end of the bindings. I could have made the smalls work, but I'm glad I went with medium. They fit perfect!

My previous board was the 2014 Gnu Velvet Gnuru. I wanted to try a rocker and it had plenty of positive reviews. It was fun and bendy and I loved buttering and goofing around on it, but I just never had confidence. I would loose my edges on groomers and riding through powder was like riding a wet noodle.

I wanted to get back to a camber board and this board seemed like the best of both worlds! Regular camber in between the feet and rocker out to the tips. It has been amazing. I've ridden powder, groomers, park and also just goofed around on the mountain with it. I paired it with Now bindings (you need to check them out as well - subtle, but amazing feeling and awesome technology in a binding set). With the combo, I feel NO chatter when going through patchy, beat up areas of the runs. It's pretty amazing.

I'm 5'5" and bought a 150. I feel that it's pretty perfect for me. I'm in the stage that I'm progressing into learning tricks and advancing my riding and I feel that I have made more progress on this board in 2 days than I did on my rocker for 2 seasons. I'm riding switch now comfortably and just feel great trying everything out.

I don't want to ride anything else. I think it's shape is the best that's out there. Pop from the camber and rocker to get through deeper stuff and to spring off of. I LOVE it.
