You ever rode stiff bindings on a wet noodle or vice versa?
90% rider, 10% board.
Get with the program here. There are no "rules" that say you can't put stiffer bindings on a softer board, it all comes down to personal preferences. If someone wants to rock Diodes or Chargers on an Artifact or Horrorscope, more power to them. That's not what I would personally ride, but who is to say that set up doesn't work for someone else?
We're all just sliding down frozen water on pieces of wood anyway..
