Not my thread, but damn, THANK YOU!

Scotty does this, because it gives you the most response. When you switch the highbacks with each other you put the higher end of the highback towards the outside, giving you more material to push up against on the outsides of the bindings for tweaking out tricks.
Ian Sams and Erik Leon both do this with their bindings.
The DS30 and DMCC light both have the same highback made of super tough nylon. It is going to feel softer than the SF45 because of the shape of it.
Ian Sams rides the DS30 because he likes a softer baseplate for jibbing. The baseplate on the DS30 is made out of a 30% fiberglass mix.
Erik Leon rides the DMCC light because he likes a little more response from his baseplate when he's flyin fast through the park. The DMCC light's baseplate is made from a carbon infused fiberglass... making it lighter, and more responsive than the 30% blend of the DS30.
Scotty Vine rides the SF45 because he likes response in his highback and baseplate. The SF45 uses a 45% blend of fiberglass in the baseplate, making it the stiffest and most responsive in the Flux line up. However, the response in this binding is a lot of fun in the park too.
Hopefully this helps you out to learn the cryptic code that is Flux Bindings...

Because she works at Flux. I'm definitely not against manufacturers on these forums but they should really identify themselves as such. Just like the Rome guys do, or Wiredsport. It's just not very professional to push your product on a forum without making sure people know you work for that company. I love Flux bindings but that's a cheap move IMO.

Normally, I'd agree with this and perhaps there are other posts that are disingenuous, but this guy was looking for Flux bindings and got some extra info from someone who actually works there.

No harm in that in this situation. Just some good ol' targeted marketing.

EDIT:

Uhhh....nevermind. I just saw that he was, in fact, NOT looking for Flux clamps initially.

I agree and I like having manufacturers on here. I meant that in general. I'd feel cheated if I bought something based on a recommendation on here if I found out afterwards that an employee suggested me something "in disguise". Really, nothing wrong with Flux. I just want to know when I'm speaking with a person who is working for them.

Eh... hard to single out Flux, as they're not the only ones doing it. Union posts as Nosedradamous or something like that and I think there are 1 or 2 more. I agree the mfrs should be more transparent, but whatever. The mfrs that are clear about it I think do a better job of supporting their brand as they come accross as interested and reponsive to consumers.

I gave my opinion. Then, gave some info that people probably didn't know about Flux. Sharing knowledge... and you can make your own opinion. Above working for Flux, I am a soul shredder and wouldn't put out suggestions I didn't stand behind. Just like anyone else on this forum. It's clear in my profile info that I work for Flux...and I'm not hiding it. Just didn't think I needed an introduction everytime I decided to post on this thing....
Hope to keep spreading the good word.

As long as she isn't trashing another binding then who cares?

Nosedramus comes up here and starts shit with Nivek every other week.

LadyFlinstone is trying to help. She's not spamming.

Arbor works with Flux quite a bit, dude asked what bindings to put on the Westmark, and so she offers up with Scotty Vine rides.

Scotty Vine is pretty fucking sick IMO. I don't watch a lot of videos and pros or whatever, but I love his style. Erik Leon too, with this frenetic style.
