Bindings help
 
Hello guys!
I am planning to buy new bindings and board this year so i need some help.

My riding style is.. Hmm.. I like to do ground tricks, presses etc.. Also i like to jib a litte and hit some smaller kickers.. Also i love speed.. I am writing this because i dont know what to choose.. Board will be probably skate banana or some other with reverse chamber..

Bindings are a problem.. I need a binding that will suit me in all conditions.. (speed, kickers, presses) .. My first choice is Union Contacts.. Second choice is Flux Distorition ( ds 45 i think ).. Can you tell me what to choose? any other bindings to consider?

Union force does it all. Really nice bindings. Can anyone second that?

From your description you do not want a center reverse board without some sort of re-camber, aka no Banana. I would look at the NS Evo, Ride Machete, CAPiTA Quiver Killer, Nitro Rook, Darkstar, or a Bataleon Jam.

Pretty good suggestions.... Minus the Bataleon Jam. Personally hated mine but TBT is not for everyone

Thank you guys for help! Helped me a lot!

Nivek can you please explain me more why to choose boards you mentioned? Thank you in advance!

I know that is hard to choose board that will be good for me in all situations i have mentioned before.. But i would like to have soft board now. I will sacrifice speed if i have to ;-) Beacuse now i have little stiffer board and it is no fun for me.. :-)

They're all mid-stiff higher level park boards. All but the QK and Jam are centered twins with at the very least zero camber. Also after Milo's post I went and double checked, I was confusing the Jam and FunKink. So switch that for me. Funkink, not Jam.

If you're really not worried about speed all that much I can give you some better recommendations as far as playfulness goes. K2 Parkstar, Fastplant, Nitro Swindle, SubZero (will limit your jumpability to below 40ft. and landing bolts anything above 25ft), Ride Kink, CAPiTA Indoor FK/Indoor, Burton Easy Livin Flying V (only if you're cool with Burton bindings, if so it is a fun board. I recommend Restricted Cartels or Malavitas). The Swindle, Kink, and SubZero will be the jibbiest. The Fastplant and Indoor will handle jumps the best and the Parkstar, Evo, Machete, Indoor FK, and EZ Livin will be the most all-around park boards. Not the best at any one thing but adept at all.

On the jibbier boards I would aim for TT30's, RK30's, Hurrithanes and Contact Pros. For the All arounders I would shoot for Force's, Force SL's, DS45's, Indy's and 390's. For the Jumpier boards I would try for Data's, Force SL's, 390 Boss, and Delta's.

All the binding and boards stated will handle the entire park and will be fun everywhere. Some will just handle some features better than others. You'll have fun on all of them :thumbsup:
