Default Which Now binding?

Any thoughts which of the Now bindings would be best suited for a Lib Tech Banana Magic?

The board is an aggressive all-mountain freestyle ride.

Thanks.

Not saying you're wrong, but why do you recommend the Drive over the Select or IPO for this board?

(Didn't you post that you didn't like the Drive?)

No I love them. I rode the ipo and they're sweet, but I like the responsiveness of the drive. I ride them on both my pow stick and my proto. I think I enjoy them more though on the proto for riding the mt. Bachelor terrain features, natural hips, mild pow days and just charging groomers. I'm also a bigger guy 6ft 215 and put a lot of weight into my turns and love the stiffness but also what the binding does. Hope that makes sense.

I'm going to muddle this thread up.

I rode the ipos on a banana magic last season. Loved the ipos on it, rode them with no highbacks most of the time. Didn't think the highbacks added much

Hmm, interesting.
I thought the Drives might be overkill on this type of a board, since Now advertises them as more free ride oriented. But I do like responsiveness as well.
Hmm, food for thought...

How stiff are your boots cause I ride my ipo’s on my heritage with k2 ufo’s and I love it, but when I have my f30’s on it is to much flex.

I have the Drives and coming from CO2's, they are not even close to stiff.

I'd go middle of the road, the highback is short, and softer than it should be(which is why they trickled it down to the select next year" and replaced it with a taller, stiffer highback going forward.)

The straps are comfortable, ratchets are great, and the dampening is excellent.

I'm sure they'll suit your needs for that board perfectly.
