I found a killer deal on some on e-bay. 60 bones can't go wrong. So I picked them up plus I fixed them. I used some locks off another set of bindings for the strings.

Those are killer if you like your board to stay on no matter what!

I had some CD AS01's. Comfortable as all get out, the cloth inside, but like JRod said, you stay in, no matter what.

Misty thats the ones I got. I tried them on and looks like no break in period. Yes I do like to stay in I hate falling out of bindings.

Right on. I liked them, except I have a med foot, and they were XL, but with the pump, and the ties, they fit fairly well. You just couldnt see my toes coming out the front. ;) I really liked them in the winter. They were really easy to get in and out of, even dry. Word of advise, when you put them up on the racks, roll the laces around your fingers to wad them up, then tuck them inside, otherwise they fly all over, and fling water into the boat onto unsuspecting people. Oh, and if yours are like mine, they would flatten out around the ankle and hooks when I wouldnt ride for awhile. I would take a beer bottle and put it in the binding and lace them up around it. It helped shape the tonge when I didnt use it, and make them easier to lace when you put them on.

Congrats. $60 is a good deal. I had '03s, and i think i sold them for $75 a few months ago.

Misty, I fixed the laces so they are like all lace up bindings. I put the sliding locks on them. I guess they are not like yours mine dosn't have the pump.

I have ridden CD/ Concrete bindings for about 8+ years off and on. No matter what else I try out, I keep coming back to them. To me they are perfect. I have a few pair now and I don't plan on riding anything else in the next few years but them. I have been overly satisfied to say the least.

I've worn it soo hard because of those bindings. They will not release, period..... I pulled my threaded insert out of a board on a hard back edge digger. They would actually bruise the top of my feet from pulling soo hard.

Dope looking, nice footbeds, sooo comfortable, but you'll never catch me riding another set. I like to be locked in tight, but not that tight.

what happened to cd? I always wanted to try the VS01's but I couldn't find them anywhere. They looked so sick

I also tried them out and after an injury to my ankle from them not releasing I sold them and don't know if I would ever ride them again.

Evan, how tight did you have them? I used to ride with Josh smith and Rich F both had them and they seemed to come out ok.

I didn't ride them that tight, but maybe my feet are fat and they just wouldn't come out. Josh and Mike Schewene both told me that it wouldn't be a problem coming out of them. I also had the ones with the cloth underlays (instead of EVA), so maybe that had something to do with it. In the end I tried riding them soo loose I could step in and out of them without un-lacing. There was just something about the design, even with them really loose I never came out.

Oh, but other then not coming out they didn't put your feet to sleep did they?

I love the fit but they don't come off on bad falls..... I've took some nasty face plants wtih them... I use them only for sliding now...

I've got Evan's old bindings, I have never come out of them, but I have only ridden them a few times (even though they are comfortable), they're currently on an old board that we break out every now and then. I still ride the Premier but with different bindings, he gave me a killer deal, thanks Evan.

Right one Stephen. I'm glad you like them. I always thought they were super comfy and sick loocking, but they freaked me out after a couple really hard falls. I ended up using them only on a slider board.

That Premier is still holding together huh? That thing has some serious hours on it. I have so many great memories on that board. Still one of my favorite shapes to date.

The Premier is still in one piece, I ride an Absolute the rest of the time and they are really similar boards, from time to time I really enjoy riding the Premier though.
