Rode them with the soft bushings and enjoyed them a lot more. I am probably 215 in all my gear so the soft were really soft. The movement in them was that much more pronounced. I think with the blacks they would be almost imperceptible to regular bindings.Enjoying these more with each run. Gonna run them without the highback next week to see how that feels. I am wondering if Now might put out a bushing even softer than the whites, I would definitely like to try them if they did.
