Hopefully we can swap setups for a couple runs
I've been wanting to try out the Camrock style on Signal/YES/Jones so bad...
I'm pretty sure we can make this happen.
For what I did with it yesterday I sure dug it. Can't wait to take it down some bigger lines. On that note, for my mini review on the Flites, I'm gonna say that they are super nice.
I know they are a technically considered a softer binding, but I don't feel like they are total noodles. I like the feel of them on the board way better than my old Cartels. With the Cartels the binding was direct on the board with no gasket or heel cushion. With the flites, the front of the binding is direct to the board, but the heel is shock absorbing eva cushioning straight to the board. Then there is a nice full footbed to cushion your whole foot. I took some decent drops yesterday, and they are forgiving and shock absorbing. So far it's all been good, but there were a few things that I am still a little unsure of.
I'm not going to call them problems, because I think they are all fixable. That being said, my boots are a tight fit in the binding, but I have a size 13 and they are only rated for up to a 14 so I kind of expected that. The right toecap doesn't fit the same way as the left one does. The left is super comfy and sits nicely, but the right has a pressure point and doesn't sit as nicely on the boot. It's still snug, it just doesn't sit quite right. That's really the only problems I have with these bindings so far, and like I said, I think they can all be fixed. On that note, on to adjustability.
I'm pretty positive that I can fix my minor issues because these bindings can be adjusted six ways from Sunday. These things are crazy adjustable. It's all fairly simple as well. The only tool you need is a Phillips screwdriver. In fact, I think I'll go find my Phillips and get on to making that right foot binding fit like it should. Guess my mini review turned out to be not-so-mini.
I'll update this a little more once I get to put some bigger lines down with them.
