I've got some Ride Contrabands and like the aluminum.
Here's what confuses me - I was at a local shop checking out boards and bindings and the salesperson - who is actually pretty knowledgeable - told me that ride bindings aren't great because they are inflexible. He said they cause a "dead" spot on your board. He was recommending Burton Cartels which I understand are great bindings.
so, who is right? I like my Rides and hated the Burtons I had on my borrowed board, but I'm just a newbie at this.
