So im looking for some new bindings for this season.
Intermediate rider looking to have downrails and 30+ foot kickers on lock this season.
09 burton blunt
5% pow runs.... i ride at mt high here in so cal
Both being around the same price I am stumped. I like the padding I hear about on the 390s for when i case those jumps but also want a light comfortable binding to jib everything on in the tt30s....
Any advice or suggestions???? thank you
I was in the same dilemma myself for at least a week, and I finally bought the 390 Boss' because I found them online for only $115 with free shipping. I did go check out the TT30's in a local shop, but no one had the 390 Boss' to compare them to. The TT30's are definitely light with a low highback. I was leaning towards the 390 Boss' anyways because there is more customization and better dampening, which I wanted for jumping. And I'd go with the Boss' instead of just the normal 390's, might as well for a mere $10 or $15. I assume you know the Boss' have the Yes I Cant system, which it ever more customization.
yes ive read up on both, But to be honest im not too concerned on the canting system. No binding i have so far has had canting and so many bindings are still coming out without this... I just feel it cant be THAT big of a deal.. idk
And the only thing that is pulling me away from the flux is the padding. I dont wanna case a jump hard and have bolts through my legs and back...
then again if i case it hard enough it wont much matter which bindings i have
My personal choice would be the 390's. They're more comfortable, and the ratchets are smoother and quicker when tightening. The dampening on flux suck too, I always find mine are really hard on my feet.
They have very different feels but that comes down to personal preference. Best way to find out is to try them.
As for jumps, don't worry too much you're in Socal, they don't actually get any bigger than 30ft. The flex pattern on the TT30's probably matches better with your Blunt. That's probably what I'd go with for that deck.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
