actually just took my first set today on my new pair of AA's (w/ the faction board). First of all, I went from riding a transced all this last year and now on the faction so i was kinda hesitant about how the board rode cause the shape is pretty much completely different than the transcend and i LOVE the new board. As far as the AA's, I took two sets today and i typically like my bindings laced really tight, so i strapped the straps really tight my first set andright when i got up i just thought h*** sh** these bindings are stiff!!! I know they need to be broken in but the second set i tightened the bottom two straps really tight and left the top strap fairly loose and really liked them after that. Cant wait till they're nice and molded and broken in cause i can tell they're only gonna get sweeter as i ride them more. Im so stoked on the new set up and cant wait to hit the water again! Congrats on the new boots, c-dub customer service has always been amazing!
Yup, got a set of factions, hated them the first 3 sets. Figured I was going to sell them, stuck with them, and now that they are broken in I couldn't picture anything else, absolutely loving them. FYI size 10 foot size M binding 23-24" stance.
