I was coming from old no name bindings, so anything was a step up. I've had experience w/ freestyles and missions, but people recommended that I spend the extra money and get these instead of the missions. Best decision of my snowboarding career. These things are very responsive (can't compare them to the stiffer, upper end bindings since I don't have experience) and the comfort level is absolutely amazing. The straps are great, but I have had a few runs where the toe strap has slipped (this could simply be b/c I didn't crank down hard enough). The bindings are also easy to adjust (straps and highback). However, if you don't like the forward lean in some burton bindings, do NOT buy these. In addition, if the highback is all the way up, I experienced a bit of calf bite, but this problem has been fixed in the 2011's b/c the highbacks in those are essentially the ones from the p1's.
