Default Burton C02 or Rome Arsenal for slayblade?

I've been on the blade for a few days using my 390 off my graft since I only have one binder. Im looking for something that's more all mountain (80/20) than park. Mostly just running trails and hitting kickers here and there. Someone told me the C02 is killer, comfortable and the tall highback makes them super responsive. Some say the Arsenal will be a great all around all-mountain binder. Dont know what to choose. Any help will be super!

Thank you.

can you throw up a slayblade review? I demoed one but it was a short time on it. Loved it for those few runs though

I'm running CO2's, very good binding IMO. It's a stiffer binding which makes it very responsive and great for all mountian riding. However they're not the greatest park binding because of the forward lean and the stiffness, they are insane on the jump line but not really made for rails, butters, and presses. Other than that, great binding, high back with mesh to grip the back of your boot, cushioned foot bed, toe cap strap grips well, and very very light.

No experience with the other bindings

I have a pair of C02s. There are great although the base plate broke. They were warrantied and all is well but I haven't gotten them back on my board. If things go well I'll get them out sometime this year. They are definitely very stiff and responsive. I don't think they would be good for park though.

I'd rock K2 bindings. The formulas or autos.

Seems like the Auto Ever is made to pair with this board.

Hey thanks guys for all the replies!

Used my buddy's Auto bindings and had a pressure point on my right foot. After all the adjustments, it was still there so I bolted on my 390s. Beside that pressure point, it was a great binder. I was strapped on and ready to bomb while everyone else still manhandling their own.

Right now the CO2 sounds pretty good. I heard that the ratchet system is like butters.. Do think a (M) will fit a size 9 ride deuce? Gonna be shopping online. It's like $350 new and that's wayy too much. Will be checking ebay and others for better deal.

Yeah, if you are looking for the CO2 and can wait keep and eye on brociety. like mentioned I see them there maybe a couple times a month. They are probably last years model but nothing wrong with that.
