That totally trips me out, as bsercka post says softer while the quote says stiffer (yes I know it was edited).
Blackhawks are considered a stiffer binding but I found them softer than the 390 boss. That's just my own experience.
I'm still shocked at how stiff/responsive the 390 Bosses are. The blackhawks are nice. Canting, comfortable and not terribly stiff. I paired it up with a Coda.
I wish it had airbags because I really want to try them out but the Blackhawks were a good binding. Great ratchets too. My favorite so far.
