Default Bindings for Jones Hovercraft

Hi looking to get some bindings for my new Jones hovercraft. Tried it at the weekend with my union sl's and it was great however I do get tired of swapping bindings around and the unions tend to live on my nidecker. Was thinking about getting a set of next year's Now drives as I here they've made some good improvements. Has anyone ridden this combo or got any other recommendations? Cheers.

Drives or selects would be killer. I'd be more partial to selects for that surfy feel. I run drives on my ultralight and they feel like a perfect match for a stiffer deck.

That would be great but my budget for bindings is about a 150$ , I"M seeing lots of stuff on clearance from last year.

Any suggestions within that budget?

Right now I'm loooking at K2 Companies, Union Forces and Saloman Arcades

Just picked up a Hovercraft the other day myself and I plan on running my Now Selects on it. You can pick up IPO's for around $170 on sale. I can't recommend the Now's highly enough.

A lot of it is going to depend on personal preference regarding flex.

Is it your only board? If you have bindings that you're already happy with, it takes 2 minutes to swap them for a pow day.

Nope this is just my powder\soft snow board , I also have a Jones Solution and a K2 TurboDream.

I have some K2 cinches on my TurboDream those are fine but I don't want rear entry for powder days just too much of a PITA.

Medium Flex is fine

Picked up a pair of Union Factory dirt cheap so they'll be living on the Hovercraft will be interested to see if the canted footbeds make any difference.
