If it's just the highback that's the issue it's fine for Bear. Will you be hard charging Mammoth at mach speeds? Who knows but I see people with noodles riding in bounds. You'll be fine. If you are that worried, for just a little more you can get some K2 Formulas which will hold up better all-mountain.

Just got back from Summit yesterday and bombed the mountain on a 145 shank. Yeah it's crazy looking down and not seeing much board but there are short steep sections then a lot of mellow sections and the steeps aren't that steep.

What board is this going on?

If you live in SD, your pretty much limited to Valley, Summit and Bear. With that said, those should be just fine for everything in the park that Big Bear has to offer.

I agree. Boots are the most important part of your setup. Sometimes certain boots don't fit in certain bindings properly. With that said the order of purchasing should be Boots first, bindings second. Boots should fit extremely snugly (not like your casual shoe) to allow for break in. Once you decide on the boot, you must actually try the boot with a specific binding (as the sizing guide on the binding box is not precise enough to cover all models and brands of boot.

Help! Anybody know which of these three Union Bindings would be best for a Rossi 164MW Krypto.

1. Contact Pro
2. Force

The Atlases will fit. I actually have a pair in purple from 2 seasons ago that don't fit perfect on my TRS.

The answer to this question SnowDog is it is all preference. I would run the contact pro's. Since you own all three why not just take them out on different days?
