I still have Bomber SideWinder split bindings and Dynafit toes, but the Phantoms look nice.
I can't figure out where or how to purchase the Phantoms. I don't do FaceBook.

Email PhantomSBB@gmail.com. John will get back to you on purchasing / inquiries. He does small orders as of last year, and I'm not 100% sure what he is going to do this year.

His bindings are stellar. Certainly the best offering for hardboot bindings.

Sidewinders or Phantoms?

Phantoms, hands down. Personally, I think they're a no-brainer over any binding system out there, hard or soft, but let's not start that argument again.

Phantoms.

No splitboard AT boot binding can compare that uses the Voile slider and pucks.

Phantoms! So quick, so light and great feel to the board...

I got ahold of John at Phantom, and will be on a pair this Fall.
Easy decision.
Thanks for the feedback.

Bomber Sidewinder's are a great HB splitboard binding. My only compliant is that these bindings are heavy!

1+

That said, I too would like to get next year's Phantoms.

I have not tried the Phantoms, yet. But if the Phantoms ride like my stock Burton Race Plates on a solid board, then they must be the HB binding to get.

John, if your looking to sell the Sidewinders in the Fall, send me a PM. I too live in the Roaring Fork Valley.

I'll try both, yes the sidewinders are heavy, but they are in the pack uphill.

Powder Rider, I'll le you know this fall if I am going to part with the sidewinders.
