How can that *not* negatively effect the flex and overall performance of the board?

You want to ghetto cant your binding go down to the local hardware store get a section of that plastic/fake wood bullshit they make decks out of cut it to the shape of your binding then plane it down at an angle. Get longer bolts and there you go.

Nothing is stopping someone from trimming them to the shape of the binding so the flex is the same.

Yeah thats true its really an external cant. I always like thin footbeds though I would much rather have regular bindings then sacrifice the amount of feel lost from raising the bindings that much.
