What bindings will help tweak the heck out of your grabs...?
Hey guys, I'm in a jam and the brain is about to melt. I'm looking for bindings that'll help tweak the grabs easier while having it strong enough for those sketchy rough landings (10 ft. kickers max). The ratchets almost completely pop out with the ones I have now. What bindings would match with a nitro subpop? I'm wearing burton hails size 8 with 70% freestyle/30% freeriding only at the park. The bindings being mentioned on the web a couple of times are the union force, rome 390/Targa and Flux titan. Would any of them fit the bill or are there other ones out there?

I personally ride Flow Quattro's on my SubPop. They match really well. Other's that will do well are 2012 Flux DS30's, K2 Hurrithane's, or Raiden Wizards.

Though out of all those I would still put Quattro's on mine. Maybe the 2012 SE's if you want even more tweak.

K2 Hurrithanes or those Flux's with the really soft highback the Targo/390 will be stiffer than what you want.

I'm not a fan of the reclining highbacks but thanks for the recommendation on that Nivek. I could only find the hurrithanes for $180 online but the 2011 rome 390's are $125. Does the flex on the k2's have a significant difference to pay the extra $55?

Yes. The hurrithane is one of the softest bindings out there

The hurrithane is pretty soft in the highback and could be reallll unstable when landing the big buck tricks. The urethane in the Flux RK30s, or the 2011-2012 DS30s is paired with a stiffer center for more stability...but that ooey gooey comfy feel of the urethane. Its the shit.

Nivek, I read your hurrithane review about the pressure points on the ankle straps. Were you riding the 2010 with the caddy strap or the 2012 Custom Caddis?

The Yellow 2011's. Though I've learned nearly all K2's give me that pressure point. But try not to mind that, I have one of the most obnoxious foots to fit. Boots are even harder. But yeah, I actually have to worry about binding comfort way more than the average person. Most probably wont have any issues with either strap.

If the hurrithane doesn't come through, would the DS30 or wizards (what year) come next?

Fuck it get rid of your highbacks and ride Sorel boots.
