Drake Fifty Vs Raiden R8
I think I have narrowed my binding choice down to Drake Fiftys and Raiden R8s.
The Drakes are available at £100 for 2010 or £130 for 2011.
The Raidens are £150 for 2008/9.
Just about every review I have seen on the Fifty is good. The Raiden R8 was a special edition Phantom with Carbon Fibre high backs to increase stiffness. Only seemed to be produced for one year and reviews are few, but all good. I do wonder why they were dropped
My ride style - cruising goomers/shallow powder. Freeride not Freestyle.
1 week per year. Intermediate. Not into Park/rails.
Any advice from the forum?
