Binding advice for new board

Hey guys, I just ordered a Forum youngblood chillydog and I'm deciding which bindings to get for it,
I am leaning towards the 390 bosses or the Flux RK30's. One thing that I am thinking might give the 390 bosses an edge is the cant system they have since the youngblood board is chillydog. I am looking for a good deal on binding prices btw but not too big an issue, just would be nice to get a deal lol

Although I am defiantly open to any and all suggestions for a good binding for this board, perhaps a Raiden zero or Union flite?

It's a stiffer board. Get stiffer bindings. Flux SF45's, K2 Formulas, Raiden Phantoms, Flow M9's.

Alright thanks for the help!
So the Rome 390 Boss would be too soft too? and what you think about the Flux TT30s?

I would suggest you Drake 50. Quite light and comfortable bindings.

390's are good. TT30's would work but SF45's would be better.

The Flux RK30 are uber soft whereas the 390 Boss are mid-stiff.
My last couple of bindings have been canted (K2 auto/Hurrithane) and while not earth shattering, I'd definitely pick canted beds over non.

From general feedback the 390 Boss/K2 Formula are pretty similar bindings, both with mostly positive feedback. So whatever you can get the best deal on would probably do.

ALright cool, thanks guys for the advice, my brother just got the forum Destroyer chillydog, would the 390 bosses be a good set up 4 him too?
Or should he get something stiffer like Targas? or maybe the Phantoms?

The Destroyer is actually softer than the Youngblood. Have him get some TT30's, Raiden Battery, or M9se's.

You sure its softer? On forum's website it shows it a 5 on the stiff rating while the youngblood is a 4.
