Flux Distortion vs Feedback vs Titan vs Super Titan vs Titan RK? HELP!!

Ok so flux has a lot of options, but I'm close to pulling the trigger on some so i need some help.

I ride park 85% of the time with a lot of jumping, 40+ ft jumps and an equal amount of jibbing. So I'm looking for something with good dampening and a moderate amount of flex, but I dont like "soft" bindings. The urethane high back they offer kind of scares me I still like responsiveness and stability and worry that it may be too flimsy.

I like the genetic base over the smooth base so I was leaning towards the distortion.

I also have a question on size. The med is designed for a boot 7-10 and the large 10-12. Now I'm a 10 and ride a board with a 25cm waist. Will the Large have over hang on a board this narrow? And will my boot fit centered in a Med? Can't try them on the only flux dealer I know only has 2 smalls left.

Edit: The site says the titan has the most forward lean in the line. Does that mean it has the furthest forward lean at the highest setting or the most natural forward lean on zero. I don't like forward lean when I jib.

Sounds to me like you're a prime candidate for the Titan. I use them on my NS Heritage. They have great dampening and good stiffness, but the highback is still pretty flexible laterally. I'm primarily a freeride guy, but I was looking for something that had more dampening and was more comfortable than my last bindings (Ride SPi's). I found them in the Titan. I'm not sure the Super Titan or Feedback would be any better for your riding style than the Titan. I would've loved to have gotten the Feedbacks for myself, but I got a great deal on the Titans and most of the feedback I got led me to believe I'd be just as happy with the Titans as the Feedbacks.

As far as sizing goes, I wear 9.5 Salomon F22s that are very low volume and have medium Titans. The fit in the heel cup is pretty doggone tight. I imagine a lot of 10s probably would be better off in a large.

Considering what you said, the Titans are the answer. As far as the forward lean, I haven't seen that, but they're prob referring to the adjustability. They're pretty straight at the 0 setting, nothing like what you're envisioning (i.e. Cartels).

How different are the Titans and the Super Titans? I saw that Eric Willett rides the Super Titans in all slopestyle events and he's stomping some big tricks and doing a lot of rails with them. If it's essentially the same binding with only a 1 cm higher back and a stiffer ankle strap is it worth the upgrade if you're a more agressive rider?

1cm taller high back and stiffer baseplate too. You're at that point now where you're overthinking it. See posts #2 & #3.

With all the options flux has I feel like I'm under thinking it. Now I'm looking at the feedback because I kind of want the genetic baseplate in the stronger blend 45 and the power strap. And from what I understand the high back is the same stiffness as the titan just asymetrical. I also just got a look at some of next years line and they look nice so I might wait wait it out.

Looks like next year's Feedbacks are the same as this season's, offered in either all white or all black.

Think there is one more colorway for next years Feedbacks.

The season is almost upon us!!!!

Dude I just bought the Flux Titan's in red 2 nights ago, have been riding burton custom '07s so this should be a huge upgrade for me, can't wait to ride them tomorrow @ whistler.

I have already mounted them all up & tuned to my boots, also tied up my boots and let sit in the bindings for 48hrs to mould the straps, they feel perfect when flexing on my board in my living room... so soft.
