Default Good "Do it All" Binding?

I need a new pair of bindings for the brand new 2011 Lib Tech TRS C2BTX I just bought! Was looking for your guys' opinions on what a great all-around "do-it-all" binding would be. Thanks!

What would YOU personally suggest as a pretty responsive binding that would work well with the board I just bought. I'm looking for a binding that could handle ANYTHING from bombing down the mountain to hitting small jumps, jibbing and all that stuff.

I have Raiden Blackhawk on my Proto. I LOVE them. I demo'd some Burton (Cartel and Malavita) this week-end and prefer my Raiden by far. Very responsive, super comfortable, smooth ratchet (better than Burton IMO), and flexible enough for park. Also has canted and cushioned footbed. Mini-disc is nice but will only fit on 2x4 inserts...

On the stiffness, I'd compare them to the Cartel.

I think they would fit great on a TRS,

Forces if you can deal with the toe caps.

Also, can someone please shed light on what exactly a "canted footbed" means? Thanks!

The base pf the binding has a cushion angled like this:


It eases some of the stress from the ankle/knee alignment.

Much more comfortable if you have bad knees.

Some people like it, some people hate it. It seems that what boot you have plays a factor but I have not had one problem with my salamon f22s. I have never personally used Raiden bindings, but I hear nothing but good things.

Canted is really just an angled footbed and they come in different degrees. When your foot is angled it is easier on the knees and feels more natural.

Here is a pic of some Forces with some "custom" canted footbeds.

Thanks for all the help! I've been looking at the Forces a lot and they look like a great binding! At least from the pictures I can't see what could possibly be so bad about the toe cap...?
