I have a pair of 2008 LF Vantage bindings that I really enjoy as they are soft, comfortable, and have significant flex.
I was at a local boat show and saw the new 2009 Vantages. They are plastic, stiff, and had far less cushion than my 08s?
I know the 08s tended to delaminate and that LF needed to change material. But the 09s look like they would ride quite differently than the 08s. Anyone ride 08s and 09s? Is it just that the 09s look plastic and cheap compared to the 08s but really still ride the same. Just curious. The 09s just looked and felt cheap and stiff.
