Default What are the highest binding?

It's too bad binding companies don't put up more specs. I'm wondering what binder will lift me up off my board the highest. The closest board shop from me is a few hours and a ferry ride so I can't just go check them all out. Can anyone shed some light?

Why you want to be higher off the board?

I'm assuming you are not doing slalom or downhill.

I haven't looked into it but you may be able to find risers?

Hey, man.
Get a Burton elevators or palmer pls system. This thing put you higher on a board for about 13mm. It really make sense, more energy in a turn, and this eliminate toe drag.
Also llok at Ride Spi, Double agent (cad and nrc from past season) it got cant system, and you can take your base plate a few millimeters up(and cant it as you like).
I use Elevators with CAD's and no toe drag at reallly deep carves.
