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???
+1 The prophecies are actually supposed to be the best of both worlds. The lower half of the binding is softer, so you should be able to get some nice lateral flex out of them

Could be the high back though, I think it predates zero forward lean.
I like a little forward lean though.
