binding and board matching

Hi guys i need advice i have 2 boards a ride dh2.5 and a gnu street series and i have 2 pairs of bindings a pair of 2010 ride nitranes and also 2011 ride lx's which binding suits which board better

and also my nitranes some time feel as if the dont hold the back of my boot when i lean forward should i be adjusting the backs forward or is this normal??

thanks

I honestly think the Nitranes would be a better choice overall on both boards (no offense, but the LX's are pretty low entry bindings).

In my opinion, stop being lazy and switch the Nitranes off between the two, haha.

ha ha i knew that was the obvious choice and that the lx's weren't great but got them just for that reason so i wouldn't have to keep switching them
does it not eventually mess up ur board by constantly taking off the bindings

Someone else who rides a lot more than me could answer in terms of long term effects (i.e. if you do 50+ days a year or plan on using these till the end of time), but if you only go a couple weeks out of the year I can't see it being too hard on your boards (provided you're putting it in/taking it out right and not stripping it).


Depending on what you use each board (assuming DH2.5 is your all-mountain freestyle, street series is more par??) I would go with the Nitranes for the freeride/all-mountain freestyle and the LX's for your jib board. Again though, might want to find someone who is more familiar with those boards (I've read a fair bit about the DH2 over on the Ride Forums, but I'm not too familiar with almost any of Mervin's boards to be honest).

As long as you are carefull with out you loosen and tighten the screws it shouldn't be an issue. You may over time begin to strip the screws if you do it a lot, but the screws are easily replaced. But if you are careful, that would take a long time.

okay so maybe looks like swaping is the best idea but i'll probably just ry both bindings on both boards and see what it feels like. also have a pair of 2010 forum shaka's would they be better for either board just don't like them much because they have really thick bases
