Bindings for soft rocker board
 
So I got a 151 Horrorscope with 08(?) Mission LTDs. Which I think are a mid stiff binding. What do you guys think about having a bit of a stiffer binding like the missions as opposed to a rk30 so u can really control and jam and push the board all over. Kinda hard to explain what I'm saying but I ride the board all over the mountain and I think I want to keep a mid stiff binding. Anyone else with a soft rocker do this? Any binding recommendations?

I would go with Union Force or Data. Both are almost exact if not the same. They are mid stiff and good for all type of riding. I have Union Data and love them and so would you.

I've been looking for some used forces. No one has an opinion on the stiffness with a soft rocker?

I have a couple boards, one of them is really soft, but it's regular camber, YMMV. I have some Ride EX and Ride Tomcat that I move from board to board depending on my current whims and when I put the Tomcats on the soft board I can throw that thing all over the place, is like riding a crotch rocket vs. a Harley... easy to turn/toss around/trick around, vs. straight-line stability. If I adjust even slightly the binding puts it straight into the board. Kinda depends on you if that is good or bad.

Seriously not forces. They are a mediocre binding with better than average durability. I highly recomment Flow Quattros and K2 hurrithanes.

I'll check out the flows. Aren't the hurrithanes soft?

I'm interested in mid stiff bindings to be able to control the board good, and interested if other ppl do that.

Soft rocker boards are plenty easy to control regardless. Stiffer bindings on a soft rocker will just get annoying eventually. Flows help with toe-heel performance so a set of those might be the way to go for you.
