Overall, it does feel a little weird at first being higher off the board but after a day thats gone. Youre loving your control and response that you never had before. The lifetime warranty on the base plate is freakin awesome to. I think for the price you cant find anything better.
I will mention a few problems. I have a large foot with an extra-large binding fitting a 10 1/2 boot, which really isnt that large, but the point is that the binding hangs off the board a little and occasionally drags on sharp edges. The first day I broke the end of the plastic insert. After the eighth day I noticed wear on the paint cracking were the base plate meets the back from rubbing. All of which is cosmetic but still irks me a bit for a new binding to already show this much wear after just eight days.
Other than the wear, I think this is a stand up binding well worth your money.
