Forum Shaka Vs. The World!

So i rode a set of the first model of shakas ever mad. I think 2010 was the year? Well i liked the response of the binding for jibs(what i do mostly) but I wasnt too pleased with the quality of the binding over all. And on top of that, the old shakas have moved down a step in the forum line. The Repubublics have replaced them and the Shakas have a somewhat different design. So I'm asking if anybody has ridden the new Shakas. Is it a Go or a No. I need durability but they have to be somewhat responsive for jibs. Any ideas? Thanks.

My impression, good, but there are better and lighter.

For jib look at Raiden Zero's, Flux RK30's, or Salomon Arcades.

Snowboarding Is...

Forum bindings are now solid quality. The 2012 Shakas were good solid bindings.

My major gripe with Forum right now, and I told the reps, is that their bindings are noticeably heavier than most.

What I like about the Shakas is that you can flip the ankle straps so that it's either stiffer or softer on the outside.

I concur with Nivek. There are better choices out there for the price. Reviews and David Z's rants
