Um, I'm sorry but who wrote the product description for these? I'm guessing Black Diamond because it couldn't be more wrong. "The O2 Bindings have what it takes to launch a massive cornice or power some fatty planks in funky, beat up snow." These bindings can't even handle my Karhu Team 100's (100mm underfoot). I have the rid stiff cartridges on them and they are still far from being "tight" or responsive. Very loose and sloppy when skiing pow, steep lines, and choppy conditions. On top of that, they "squeak" on every turn,(a sound that I am pretty sure comes from the boot sole rubbing on the plate, and definitely not from the cartridges, which are brand new). There's a reason pro tele guys, like the boys from Powderwhores, are riding Hammerheads, Axles, or NTN setups. Sorry for the harsh review BD but you should be sued for false advertising. Your bindings suck

First off, I currently ride the BD 02's and man do they suck. So loose and floppy it's hard to ski aggressively without feeling like my Karhu Team 100's wanna come out from under me on every turn. The other problem I have with the 02's that make's me just as pissed is the "squeaking" sound on every dropped knee caused by, what I believe to be the boot sole on the plate.(Rubber rubbing on plastic) (Definitely not the cartridges) .........With that said, my question is has anyone had any similar problem with Hammerheads making noise/ squeaking like the BD's do? Is the plate made from similar crappy plastic like the BD's have? If they are quiet, then i'll have no problem pullin the trigger on purchasing some Hammerheads. Thank
