Multiple bindings?

I was curious to weather people have different bindings for different riding. I have built a decent collection of boards and like having different ones for what I'm doing, but Ive always just used one set of bindings for everything. I was wondering what the advantages would be for having park bindings on my park board vrs my more all mountain binding. does have different bindings for different setups.

Certain bindings are more flexible than others. If you're into hard carving, you'd probably want something stiffer. More trick oriented and something a bit more forgiving might be in order.

Then again, personal preference over all.

(Stiffer=More Responsive in this case)

I just hate switching bindings between boards.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I'm aware of the different flexes in bindings. the difference in a park binding with a more flexible ankle strap/high back/chassis compared to a stiffer one.

I was just curious what the advantages to having both would be. I know the advantages of having a park specific board and an all mountain cruiser, but was wondering peoples take on if there are advantages for doing the same for bindings or if most just have a preference in a binding and stick with it.

I like my capo its a little stiffer high back and the ankle strap is more flexible than my older delta and the wedgies make pressing easier imo. Plus I like the response of them. So what advantage would I get by say putting the Rodeo or union contact on my park board over them other that not having to switch them over constantly (witch I dont mind) due to conditions or where I'm ridding or who with.

I have Flows on my freeride board and Romes on my park board.Flows can be at bit of a pain to get into on the side of a random slope (which is the case if you're hiking up in the park) but are way better coming off the lift. (My opinion, of course ) Traditional bindings are more convenient in the park for getting out quickly and strapping in on the slope.

Just like boards, bindings have their own niche too. You don't see too many people jibbing rails all day with their CO2s. It could be done but I doubt it's preferable.
