Bindings for NS revolver

Hey guys,

Stats:

Height 5FT 11
Weight 181lbs
Boot size 11 thirty two tm 2

Just bought the 2011 NS revovler 159 and am looking for new bindings to suit. I will use it as my all mountain stick, I jib and butter around the hill, hit the park at times and can hit speed. Nothing too stiff or soft.

I currently ride an Endeavour paavo 157 with burton p1 bindings they go well with this stick but I find em a little stiff.

Cheers in advance

Off topic, but why did you go with a wide board?

Thanks guys, but you wanna narrow it down a bit ! Have been looking at 390, forces and TT30, maybe cartels but I hear they're pretty stiff? I do love burton bindings for comfort and performance!

Leo, This will be my first, with size 11 I've always had a little over hang with norm width boards but it's never bothered me (no heel or toe drag), but I was hearing the wide is more stable and because it will be my all mountain stick I went for it.

I was deciding between Rev and Proto. I have never had a park stick and decided it was time so the Proto went out of the pic. I'm still not sure if it was the right choice especially after ready your proto review thread, but we'll see after I test it I guess..

Well, the Proto is a good park board too. It's also a great all-mountain board. The Evo isn't so hot on steep and fast runs, but you have a wide so maybe?

At size 11, you are between wide or normal. You're going to notice slower edge to edge response on a wide. If you had no issues on any other normal width board, you should have stuck with normal in my opinion.

You should never choose a wide board strictly for more stability. Just get a board with more dampening/stiffness. Sounds like Proto CT would have been a better choice

Anyway, my vote goes for the Boss

LoL! Well, to be really honest, I just don't want you to get on the Evo and be disappointed for the wrong reasons. In reality, I'm sure you'll have a really great time on it. Just chalk it up to future reference

If the board is under 25cm at the waist, then you will want something beefier in that department. The normal Evo is 25cm+ (don't know exact, but I know it's at least 25cm). Remember, the board width at the binding inserts is wider than the given waist measurement.

Like I said, size 11 usually means you are in limbo between a normal and wide. That means there will be no significant impact either way. Just a little less response if you go wide or a little more overhang on a normal width.

My buddy has been on wide boards most of his years with size 11 and he has 32 TM's as well. I demoed boards with me this year and rode nothing but normal width boards. He bought a new board and it's not a wide.

Are you dead yet?
