Default Now Binding Bushings (Soft, medium, hard)

I just demo'ed the Now Drives today on very choppy snow with the medium bushings. It was warm during the day so it was all slushy and then night time came and froze all the slush chunks so it was pretty ideal for testing these supposed chatter reducing bindings.

Gotta say, i'm not sure if I really felt the effect of the Kingpin. I've read in other posts that you really feel the kingpin most when using the soft bushings (which doesn't come with the Drives, btw, only the ipo's and the selects) and that the hardest bushings turn it into any other kind of bindings.

Is there a big difference in the dampening effect going from medium to soft bushings?

The only thing i noticed was my landings were real soft and steady. I'm not sure if this has more to do with the board I demo'ed too which was the Neversummer Proto. I normally ride the Gnu pickle which is more loose.

Didn't really have another point of reference either since my old bindings are broken. And my friend rides a very soft board which is all chattery.

Which bushings do you all ride on?
