First Post: Undecided On Bindings

Hey everyone.

Ive been riding for about 6 years now, really torn between which bindings to go with.
I ride alot of park but like to shred pow when I can. (I live in a fairly flat region)

The bindings I have been looking into are the Flux RK30, they sound amazing but im unsure of the soft high back. Also looking at the Union Flites, heard the straps are brutal but the bindings are light witha durable base plate. Ive been looking at Burton Cartels as well but heard the high back is uncomfortable.

Ive tried a few brands, flow, ride and nitro (years ago). Currently on the Ride WT limited edition and had alot of problems with the straps.

If anyone can help me in this prediciment it would be greatly appreciated.

The Flux RK30s uses a urethane highback that flexes with you side to side. Flux has been doing urethane in the bindings for about 5 years now and have pretty much perfected the blend. It isn't too soft and unstable like other brands urethane models. The highback is stiff in the middle so you dont loose response when carving front to back. If you felt the highback you can move it side to side, but if you move it front to back it will remain stiff and responsive. It is a good binding not just for park, but for all around. The feel is amazing...way different than anything else you mentioned you tried.
