Bindings for Echelon Killbox
 
My new board, an Echelon Killbox, finally arrived on the weekend, 1 week after I break my collar bone:dizzy:. While I am bummed I wont get to ride it this season, it sure gives me something to look forward to.

So, I want to get some new binders to match this sexy beast, which suit its flex, but hopefully also the style.
I am keen to try Flow's rear entry system, especially if I spend time jobbing/doing rails with this. But is the lack of 'feel' in flows going to be a problem?

What other bindings would suit? And since I have all year to look, when will be the cheapest time to buy? Looking to get something budget, dont mind last years models etc

So I know I posted my NOW's for sale. No one bit on them and I decided to ride them a few more times. I really like the IPO's on the killbox, I stole the idea of half and half bushings from the NOW drive thread, I have green on the outside and white on the inside and I love how it feels, I did the same thing with my Drives (black on outside Orange on inside) they feel better to me now.
If you dont go Flow consider the IPO's

(Im not selling my NOW's anymore)

I've always been a huge fan of flux and thats what I ride with my current echelon boards, mainly the archer and orion. I use to rock the rk's which are the softest bindings and well suited for a jib board. Now I am on a pair of DS cause I wanted a little more response.

My friend rides the Rounds with Flow Freeballers. He loves em. If you arent into the no backs deal I personally like the Five GTs for jib decks or Fuse SE if you want something with canting and NASTY.

Others I've liked, Now IPO, Union Contact Pro, Salomon District, and Flux DS.

Thanks for the responses :)

cav, I have to admit i was looking at all the positive reviews on the Now's. Just waiting to see if they go on sale. Still hovering around the $200 mark though (I can get some lower end Flows on auction here for a bit over 100).

Cr0, flux is big out here, but unfortunately also expensive. Will keep an eye out for those though; hoping to see some EOS sales soon

Nivek, I did see some freeballers going cheap the other day. I was a bit hesitant though because i figured that would make my board completely useless outside the park... And plus it sort of sets the expectations pretty high when other boarders see me and think "oh shit, no highbacks, this guy is about to bust some crazy tweaked out shit!" and then i fall on my face!

So now i am looking at Now IPOs, Flux DS/RK, Salomon District (actually thought that sounded like cool tech) Union Contact Pro (they are always mentioned - must be something good), as well as the Flow Fives/Fuse SE
Of course the ones i pick will most likely the ones i can find the cheapest over here in J-land:unsure:
