Hi I’m Al, I just got off the Burton Step-On Binding. I give this binding a 3 out of 5 stars. It’s a little softer, I thought as far as the double Boa Boot and binding combo goes. I’d say this binding is great for a beginner to intermediate rider. It’s a little squirly to get use to at first, but once you get the hang of it it’s pretty quick. I give it a 3 out of 5 stars.
