I ride Ions with my Lib T. Rice pro and I have Burton Prophecy bindings, which have been discontinued for the Genesis bindings. Perfect blend of jumping and carving ability IMO. Not so hot for boxes and rails.
Actually, the highback on the cartels stiffened considerably in 2012. From 2011 and back for 5 or 6 years (i forget exactly) it was the same stiffness.
In 2013 the highback is essentially the same but has 3% more torsional flex than 2012.

and dude, how on earth can a binding be good for jumping and carving but not good for boxes and rails??? What exactly happens on a box? You ollie on and flex a press and ollie off. What's with the prophecy's that is deficient for this???
