If you want something fun to mess around on that has a sintered base... Signal Rocker Light?

For bindings it will actually help to have a binding that is as stiff or a bit stiffer than your board, but make sure it's something that allows good board flex.

Flow Fives, Flux DS30, Burton Mission Re:Flex, or Raiden Zero's.

Snowboarding Is...

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

Well the main reason I went with the ET is because as I said it is the softest with a Sintered base. I chose Bataleon/Lobster because I want to have a board with TBT. I chose the Sintered base because I usually snowboard with friends and stick together and I want to make sure I am not left behind. I want to be able to butter but I dont want to exclusively butter because I dont see myself bringing the board with me if that was the case. I do not do any park as of now so its not like Im gonna grab the board bring it to the park, its more of a supplement to me freeride experience.

So if you guys think there is a better board out there with TBT which would you suggest? Should I just go with an Extruded base and go with the Disaster?(I was going to grab this board before I noticed it was Extruded)

If so which are a good set of bindings to pair with it? ot sure if it applies to buttering but I usually prefer super stiff bindings.

So..

1) Which TBT board?
2) Which bindings for said board
3) Potato

You will be able to keep up with your friends just fine on the Disaster. Might chatter a bit at speed but I doubt you guys are bombing 50+ mph every run.
I know you dont want to stray from TBT but there truly is much better out there.
Good bindings would be probably Flux RK30's, Union Contacts, Union Asadatchi, and Burton Malavita.

Emerica should make snowboard boots

disaster, funkink, airobic or the whatever for a tbt board if youre set on it. You'll still be able to keep up with the extruded base.

Rk30's, raiden zeros, union contact, k2 hurrithane. all softies

outside of tbt id say Rome artifact rocker, Signal park rocker light, Nitro subzero, Capita horrorscope.. theres many options.. and I noticed that Dogfunk has Artifact rockers from last season for super cheap right now.

So I just came across a new 2012 Nitro Anton Gunnarsson pro one off (swindle) 155 for a price I could not resist and I bought it. And now I have some doubts about bindings. I have 2013 K2 Formullas which I like a lot, but I can get slightly used 2014 K2 Hurrithane for a very good price. So the question is, will I be good with formullas on a park board, or I definately need sth. soft like Hurrithane? Will be learning to dial in presses, jumps, 180s, 360s, all that fun stuff on the ground.
it would be an easy call to buy those hurrithanes, but I, like many of you, wached Jed's videos and he was advocating K2 Formullas a lot, and he was talking freestyle, so I'm confused now.

Burton Malavitas with the wings. I almost picked some up this year but decided to go stiff and got Union Chargers. Still may end up getting the malavitas at some point. I put my old burton customs on my new park board and the chargers on a more freeride board.

I think I have settled on the Bataleon Evil Twin because I think they TBT looks great and it is the softest board they offer that has a Sintered base. Now The bindings are what is throwing me off. Not sure if I should get soft medium or stiff bindings. So far I have looked at a variety of bindings such as

Union Contact
Union Contact Pro
Union Force SL
Union Asadachi
Union Atlas
Flux SF45
Flux DMCC
Ride Rodeos

Anyway what are your suggestions? Does not have to be on the above list but I prefer to stay away from step in bindings as I do not trust them.

Other info: 180lbs Size 11 2011 Ride Insano Boots


i ride flux sf45's... if you want stiff, i think you would be hard pressed to find a binding that is stiffer and as well built as the sf's

just out of curiosity, have you tried any of the other softer boards (i.e. disaster, jib baord, etc.)? because Disaster >>> Evil Twin on the fun scale.

but yeah, Contact Pros would work. or if you're actually going with a softer board you can look at the DLXs also. much cheaper, but they do the job. that's what I have on my Disaster and I am pretty happy with them.
