2011 Flux DS45 opinons

I just bought a new pair of last seasons Flux DS45's. With the new season approaching,(around here anyways) I was wondering if anyone has put a season on a set and what i can look forward too? I know why I bought them, bought theory and practice are 2 seperate things right?

Thanks.

Keep it on Wax.

I love my DS45s. The urethane highbacks are the shit. The highbacks can be switched with another for a different feeling ride. With the higher end of the highbacks towards the middle the bindings are most responsive. When you are using the higher end of the highbacks toward the outsides the bindings you have more response on the outside and more movement on the inside for presses and tweaking. Kinda like the same idea as the wings. With more material to push up against the better your presses can be. Try switching the highbacks and see what you think.

Try switching out the highbacks or adjusting the angle of the highback? I appreciate the input.

Switching the highbacks will give it a different flex. When you rotate the highbacks, you would have the highbacks more parallel with your edge giving you more response.

I've played with the buckles, and they seem smooth...but anything is better compared to the crap I had last season. I lost the hardware on my front toe-strap before my 1st season run last year. As well i lost my rear toes strap on my second trip out...Morrow bindings suck (but were cheap).

Keep it on Wax.

My buddy and I traded boards the other day and he rocks these on his NS Evo. They are definitely a softer binding than I was used to, but I was quite surprised at how responsive they still were. Not to mention they are flux, so they are super comfortable and very well made. It is the only binding I bolt to my board so take my response for what it is, slightly biased

FLUX

Some of the best build quality out there. Keep them. Just wish they would do something to improve the foot beds to dampen the harsh landings

The DS30, DMCC light and DMCC all have the full footbed now. Gives it an even cushion under the stompers.
