2018 11 20 11 15 49 Now Bindings   IPO1
2018 11 20 11 15 30 Now Bindings   IPO

Although my heart wants to believe there's a chance, my expectation is that they did not make these with the original style highbacks and the photos showing those were taken of pre-production.  Evo & BC & Now websites are all showing both versions...

Can anyone confirm what the green highback is actually like?

Looks like a Typo... the IPOs all have the newer highback style shown from the back. The other one was used on the 1st year and on the women's bindings.

That's fully my expectation. especially b/c the other colorways don't have the original style highback in any photos. But I didn't know if the green got some special OG model release. Why even make the OG highback to take pictures of?

finally tried out the Drives i picked up late last season. first thoughts were that i like my Yes collabs better for comfort reasons. made some adjustments at one point that had me SO locked in, loved em for that run. then i took a quick break and couldn't seem to get them back. looking forward to getting them nailed down

I have a set of smalls, which might be the jam. The higher heelcup makes it so the ankle straps don’t need to be so long. I can send ya a set... Hit me up on FB messenger

So I’m just not imagining it! Glad it’s that way for some one else as well. As I said, it was a complete accident one time, but I was like, damn these things are fitting way better and it took a hot minute to figure it out.

Oh yes, mine are flipped too.

ThirtyTwo and Vans boots.... fit is way better when flipped.

pow_hnd strikes again!   ordered and received Small burton ankle straps (malavitas) for my 
Now Drives and they are perfecto.  i dare say  they are slightly longer than the stock Now straps
(medium size drives)

the extra comfort is reallly nice

wait, so @pow_hnd , @F1EA and @rickbb --- you guys put the left toe cap on the right binding and the right on the left? is that what you mean by flip? may have to try that out on my drives, they've been slipping a weeeeee bit. 

i just made some changes to setups last night. going to give "the dirksen" a try on my signal yup with now x yes collab. +18/0, high cup on front foot, 3 clicks forward lean on the back.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯   will see how it goes

on another note....anyone running nows on a channel board? i scooped the channel discs on sunday before riding but couldn't get the washers to fit so i rode w/o them. not the smartest but i was being impatient to try out the Yup. luckily didn't ride too long because at the end i think i could see some veeeerrryyyy light dimples on the base from the screws being too long. played around last night and my drives came w/ the "standard" round silver washers, but the Yes collabs have seemingly Now specific black ones that are straight on the sides and rounded on the top/bottom. they legitimately did not fit in the channel discs....anyone have these issues?

Yes, that is correct. Left on right, right on left. Works much better.
