I just got a Lib Tech Skunk Ape with C2BTX. I need to match up some bindings to it.
My stats / requirements:
- I'm 210 lbs
- A lot of the time I'll be with my wife, so I want to be able to comfortably mess around
- I'll occasionally be riding fast and hard
- I most like to hit natural features, play in the pow and have fun
- I'm not huge into carving groomed runs
The Targa's seem great with their adjustability. The problem is price. In Canada, they'll be expensive, and I haven't even found a shop that has them in yet. the SF45 is basically the same concern. They seem awesome, but I can't find any 2011 on sale and 2012 will be expensive.
I found some 2011 TT30's on sale, and I really want to get them.... but I'm hesitating because I'm worried they won't be responsive enough for my snowboard. But since it's a reverse camber, rocker hybrid (C2BTX) maybe that won't be a problem. I'm also concerned that my weight may turn them into noodles.
I do have a pair of Burton P1HD Carbon's (I know, kinda old) that I can slap on if I need something really stiff. But I can't imagine a scenario where I would. Maybe on a crazy pow day or something.
Other potential choices:
: How flexible are these? I can get these on sale too.
: These seem quite stiff. But are they like a brick wall, like my P1HD carbon's? Could I still have some fun with them if I relaxed the forward lean, and adjusted the ankle strap to be softer? This forum topic
seems to suggest that they are an OK second choice to Targas.
So, what do you think? Will TT30s be responsive enough for me or will they be wet noodles? Are they only good for rails, jibbing and park riding? Are Ride SPis a good second choice to Targas?
If it came down to SF45 VS Targas... what would you recommend?
