I bought these with the idea that they were comparable with the fks or jester. I misjudged. After only 30 days on them, they are already starting to give me problems with sloppy heel and some releasing. After cranking the din above my recommended number, they were better. I also marked them down on pure anticipation of them breaking, with the plastic heel bits. They will do for this season, and maybe longer if I baby them, but you probably won't find me buying anything from Salmon any time soon.
That being said, if you are looking for a solid binding and don't abuse your gear to the point I do, this might do the trick, I would consider jesters
