Okay, need to buy these by the end of the year. And I'm getting a new board in 2014.
So I guess my Arsenal's are a stiff binding (I really haven't compared them with anything though, been riding them for a long time now). But I think something a bit softer would be more comfortable, especially on landings. I just don't want to give up too much responsiveness.
So I'm thinking sort of in this order:
Union Contact Pro - As long as these aren't too soft compared to what I'm used to
Salomon Chief- If I want to go with something stiffer
Union Force - Another option for something a bit stiffer
If it helps, I don't know what board I'll get, but I'm looking at the Lib Tech Hot Knife, Lib Tech TRS, K2 Happy Hour, and Rome Mod.
Any last minute tips are appreciated before I pull the trigger.
