Familiarity: I've used it several times

Wow I never realized how unique Burton Rider Services is in the industry. No one at DogFunk or Salomon USA (the snowboard support specialist) could tell me how anything on this binding worked. Shades of the old days when riders bitched about big chain stores. Must be a reality of the times but Burton stands way ahead of the pack like Apple. Definitely factors into my spending choices. I'm sending these back and buying some Cartels. DogFunk and Salomon "fail" in today's marketplace. You have to have some semblance of "rider services" or technical support.

I've never seen or read much about Signal. - these guys make a SICK board!! The 157 OG is the best freestyle board I have ever ridden, and at 39 years old I've ridden everything. Perfect waist width, great sidecut, and the biggest pop I have ever seen.This thing is a step up from the original K2 cambered Believer which won top position in Good Wood a few years back. I had read some old reviews on the web that this board chattered at speed, well not this updated version, it rips.I just bought three of these in case anything happens to this company or their OG board design.This is the perfect board.

I love these bindings, they have replaced my Burton CO2s. I wear Burton Ion boots and these bindings fit perfectly. They are essentially a freestyle specific Burton binding. I especially love them because they are not a unibody binding and you can adjust the heelcup length allowing you to run your binding baseplates such that you can fine tune your stance. I also love the highbacks they are less intrusive than a typical Burton binding. Great straps and the hinged base plate works better than my Burton Prophecys. I prefer this binding over the burton Prophecy - more adjustable and a hair stiffer.

These bindings are awesome. I have been riding CO2s for years but switched to the Union Force SL last season because it was lighter with a better flex and just as much response as the CO2s.Now the Force SLs are going in the closet. The Prophecy is so smooth and responsive and the reflex design does give you better board feel and pop, if you can't feel it then there's probably a lot of things you're not tuned into. The flex is as advertised "medium" just a little smoother than the Force SL but I found they were more responsive when paired with my Burton boots because the fit was flawless.Prophecy and Ion is park/all mountain nirvana. (Not too soft unless you are someone who makes heel turns by hammering your highbacks).
