Flux DS45
 
Can anyone give me a reason not to get the Flux DS45 bindings?

I am an all mountain rider and will dabble in the park. For the 2011 season, I'm hoping to get a Rome Graft, but haven't purchased it yet.

I love Flux's bindings but I hate their new model names. I have no idea what the DS45 is.

These will be my first bindings, so I Distortion doesn't mean much more to me than DS45. :) I read somewhere the new names describe the percentage of their genetic base. So DS = Distortion and the 45 = 45% Glass Fiber base.

No reason not to but might want to look into the SF45. Depends on how much time you are planning to spend in the park. The DS45 will have a softer highback then the SF45 so just depends on how soft you want to go.

I don't like the way they're naming the line now either... It's easier to remember a name vs a couple letters and numbers even if they relate to the amount of blabity blap in them

Guess it was easier for me since all the boxes that their bindings come in had most of the shortened names on them to begin with so I was already used to it, they just added the numbers to it.

This is very helpful, thank you. I couldn't really find any reviews on how soft or stiff these were. I'm probably leaning a little more towards the SF45s now. I can get either one of these for around $130.

I love almost everything about Flux bindings and the co. except the new names for this year. It's hard for me to keep it straight, even though I know their line fairly well, so I can only imagine how hard it would be for new potential buyers. Anyways, for what you're trying to do, the DS45 sounds like a perfect fit for you. Pull the trigger!

Thank you very much for the replies everyone. I went ahead and got the SF45s, as I'm looking Looking for something a little stiffer. Thanks again for the input.

Flux in Ontario, Canada
 
Hey guys... don't want to take any bit of this thread over. Just want to know if any of you know where in Ontario, or any other part of Canada I can find a shop to pick up a pair of flux bindings? I've been trying to call the distributor up here (HOsports) for quite a while now and they haven't said shit to me... and I've been through their retailers list in Ontario and haven't found a shop yet advertising that they carry them. Any ideas?
