Damn -- this is hard.

To recap:
What I want -- solid binding to pair with 2012/2013 Ride Proto CT. I ride all mountain, mostly east coast. Nothing more than a flat box in the park.

I'm 5'7", size 8.5 boot and weigh in about 180 or so.

I want canting (must have for my 40+ year old knees). That's what has my list shortened to Ride, Burton and Rome.

I want something stiffer than the EXs but softer than my old SPIs.

I currently have Ride EXs on a cambered Ride Antic.

I have no idea how the scales, across manufacturers, relate.

Ride:
Their scale is one to ten (one being most "flexy and forgiving").

EX: 4 with wedgie 1.5
Capo: 7 with wedgies 2.5

Burton:
Same scale as Ride

Malavita: 6 with autocant (not really sure how that gets quantified)
FullBED Cushioning System
B3 Gel

Custom: 7 with autocant
They don't have the "FullBED Cushioning System"

Rome:
The 390s are listed at the middle of Rome's range.


I am finally picking up my Proto this week and wanted to look at some bindings while I was out and about.

Anything on that list (other than the EXs) that should be struck off?
Anything missing from that list?

Thanks
