the importance of bindings question.

hi. i am no bindings expert and i really never gave them much though. i have the same bindings (mission 2007) for the past few years on different boards (rome agent, libtech trs, burton elite) and i cannot tell the difference from the bindings.

i just bought a new board (capita horrorscope fk) and am not sure if the burton missions will do well for them or if i'm supposed to go for some other really soft bindings?

i am intermediate on the mountain but new to park. i enjoy doing presses a lot if that is relevant to the bindings i should be getting.

will this really make a difference honestly? i don't have that much money left to spend this season so i'm trying to figure this out. thanks!

Duck tape Cheap and allows for buttery presses...gave up on bindings last year!

Anyways:Forum Republic Snowboard Bindings - FREE SHIPPING at Altrec.com

Try these they have a special baseplate that allows the binding to flex.

You want a binding that matches up with the intended purpose and your use of the board. For example if you have a stiff freeride deck that you will be taking in steep, challenging terrain, you go with a stiff binding. This will provide a high level of response, matching up well with the board and the terrain.

The horrorscope is designed as a jib/park board so I would go with a softer binding that will match up well with tweaking buttering and pressing.

In summary if you get something you can afford you are probably fine. Any stiff, responsive binding is higher end and more expensive so you wouldnt be looking at those. IMO check out Rome United and 390, Ride EX/LX, Union Contact/Flite or Burton Exiles.

Missions will be fine on that board. Bindings really only make a big difference if they're either the completely wrong type for your riding, or are just built like shit. For you the Missions are neither.
