I think all of them are ugly as sin.

I ride 03 Parks bindings and love them. I really have to agree with Stanfield as far as looks for '05. I'd think Hyperlite could do better.

While I don't agree with Hyperlite's business practices, I have to admit, the '05 3DS/'04 Highback is my number 2 favorite binding that I have ridden. Trailing the '05 LF Team

I agree with Stanfield...

I was going to buy a new pair of HyperLites this year, but after seeing how god-awful they look I may go with some other brand for the first time. :/

Well I'd say they are all hideous except those damn Parks' with that sweet swangin' medallion. It's been a lot of years since a company came out with an innovation as ground breaking as that!! I saw someone do a medallion grab yesterday, it was the most stylish thing I've ever seen. Someone was telling me that it's got a positive polar charge and works like those bracelets our grandparents wear and makes your ankles like sorta bionic!! Sweet god that is off the chain!!!!

I really like the looks of the murrays. I'd get 'em if I wasn't so broke.

Well i think liquid force bindings are so so so so much better than hyperlite! I my self own a pair of 04 parks nice comfy but after i tried on ultras and sphynx! Hyperlite bindings are ugly this yeah xcept the byerlys!

Liquid force bindings rock

Stephan - agreed, the medallion on the Parks boots is stupid as hell... I'm a fan of the 3DS, Era and Murrays... let's put it that way...

i found the 2K5 hyperlite collection not that nice, graphic and comfort !! liquid force bindings are way ahead, demo a pair of sphynx or transit you won t be disapointed

I like the murrays i was talkin to shawn and he said they were designed to be able to put them on with no hands and it is kinda nice to be able to just wiggle your foot in.

i dont see how you get your feet in those things without using your hands...there are like 4 different tightening devices. maybe if you use that polar charge from the parks medallion, you can tighten the murrays without hands.

i used to dig the old belmonts. now i hate the new ones. too many pressure points here and there.

i used to dig the old parks. now i'm not a big fan...too much heel lift.

Transits.... best bindings I've ever worn. Anybody want my '04 Parks? (M/L)

We went riding the other day and my buddy had bought some new murrays over them winter. They ripped on his 2nd or 3rd big air.
Crap.

ha, the apparently forgot to take into account after you get your foot in, then you're spending time w/ the boa, then laces, then option 2, the boa again (for some people I know)...

I like My LF teams. Get in, pull 2 laces, go.

I like my new Byerly's . The BOA's take awhile to tighten initially but it's worth it being able to tighten them while riding.

I miss the forward lean that my old ones had though

I'm sure I'll get used to it.

i think the new eras are the sickest...thats why i got them,plus they have a great price. i cant believe the new parks. how could hyperlite mess them up anymore than they are now?the new temmets are sick too.i am sponsered for surfing by a surfshop that sells hyperlite too so i cant say any thing about liquid force.
