Park and Mountain?
 
Im looking for bindings to use for both Mountain and park. I've been boarding for more than 2 years now.

I hear that plastic bindings have a bit more play when it comes to mountain, but aluminum bindings can bend and are slighly uncomfortable when at park because they do not flex.

Can i go with a pair of bindings that can do semi both?

i checked out-
Salomon Chief
Burton Custom
Flux RK30?
Forum Shaka
Ride Revolt
Rome Boss

what do you think of the above and can you possibly reccomend something in the limit of $220

Thanks a ton guys.

Cheers
Pav-

Try some K2 Uprises, Flow M9's, 2011 Ride Nitranes, Flux TT30's, or Raiden Zero's.

Kevin, how about some substance on WHY Pavlo should try your suggestions. Like how do they ride, have you ridden them or is it just cause they make em in pretty colors that match all them cool stickers on your Honda?

Suggestions, with reasons why Kev dog.

Uprises cause they ride like Formulas with a little softer base being auto. Good strong, tall, supportive highback and canting to keep them knees feelin good. 2011 Ride Nitranes were one of my favorite bindings. The urethane towers in your toes and heels were money and with the right boot-fit the thong works great and give you all the response you need. That was also one of my favorite highbacks to date. Drive back into in in a turn and you get a really strong feel, but get any kind of tweak in the park and that top section lets you do what you want. The TT30's have pillow comfy straps and are lighter for 2012. They did lack a little in dampening but were still a solid no frills get it done kinda park binding. The Zero's are my personal pick for a little bit softer park binding for 2012. I prefer the airbag dampening even to Harshmellow, the ratchets were butter, their minidisc give noticeably better flex under foot, highback can be driven into somewhat but is mainly park oriented, and the toestrap gripped, didn't move, and I never felt it on my toes.

That is all my experience from being in them.

Speaking of the Nitrane, did they turn into something else for this season?

They basically got rid of it. The Ill Eagle is like a mix of the Nitrane, Contraband, and Revolt.

Their R&D are mad scientists and change up everything completely every few years. Honestly my biggest issue with Thongs was they weren't big enough. The perfect fit for me was to use the 11-13 thong on my 9-11's. If they just made the thong a little bit bigger, or offered two sizes in the box, I think they would have sold better and it would have stuck around.

I have the Rome 390s, Burton customs, Burton Triads, Burton CO2, and KT auto uprise. My recomendation for a do anything binding would be the uprise or the 390s. The uprise is soft when I want it to be soft and plenty stiff enough for most of the times I really want to lock in. The auto works pretty slick and the Cant base is just plain comfy.
