C60 vs Diode

Is there enough of a difference between these two to pay the extra bucks for the diodes??

Right now I Can get a pair of c60s for just over 100 bucks......

I don't need them no, but I'd like to try them. I currently have the 2012 prophecys.

Kind of like shocks on my truck...the ones I have give a good ride, but I could upgrade for a better ride.

I really would like the diodes, but at the same time the c60s are a good binding that also allow me to see what a non ReFlex ride feels like.

Im not finding many deals on the diodes...

choose the c60 unless you really care about having 1 lb less weight to your binding

Not really... Looking to try something stiffer much more than something lighter.

From your various threads on these bindings you should really just get the Diodes. You obviously really want the Diodes and are experiencing some buyers remorse with the Prophecies; the same is likely to happen with the C60's. For what you've already spent and are going to spend on the C60's , you could have gotten the Diodes to start with. Either bite the bullet now, or wait for the sales and hope you can snag a pair in your size and colorway.

I can see why you would think that. The Diode is still top on my list, but for now I'm going to try a 2010 c60 to see how I like a stiffer more responsive binding. The biggest difference is no RE:Flex. A lot of people seem to like it.... who knows. I'll probably end up with all three in the end... and could even end up back with the prophecys.

Those blue Diodes would look good with my billy goat...
