Looking at getting one of the 3. What can you guys tell me in terms of performance and comfort. I am an advanced rider...not expert, who likes the slack country and wants a binding that I can wear ripping down a groomer or killing it in the trees.
Yes...I am talking about the 2012 models. My only concern was the stiffness of the prophecy. I ride a banana magic and want a good responsive binding to match the board. I also really liked the feel of the EST Channel system and am trying to replicate that with these bindings. Any thoughts?
Probably not going to bomb it too much. I think something a touch more mellow than the Cartel and a bit more responsive then the Malavita might be just right. Sounds like the Prophecy might be a good call. How does the TArga feel in terms of board flex, feel? I have heard the Re-Flex of burton is as close the the EST feel as you can get.
I rock cartels (10-11) and I don't find them too stiff. I do ride pretty hard most of the time, but you can ride chill or freestlye in them no problem. I find them to be pretty well rounded so you can do most things on them. Not park focused of course but fine for occasional trips through the park.
