Meshing it all together.

Whats up guys,

I recently had posted the setup I was getting somewhere on the forum for some advice on the setup itself. Originally I was going with a 157/159 Lib-tech TRS, Union Forces or Atlas's and DC boots. Now the tables have turned a little bit and i'm looking into new avenues. Really looking for some people to speak there mind.

Board: Still the TRS because I love it. Great all mountain board that performs. Just can't decide if I need 157 or 159. I'm 5'7 and I hover between 195-215.

Bindings: Kinda decided to veer away from the forces too the Atlas's and Possibly Flux TT30's. Also I was wondering how Flow and Ride match up too these two companies. Really need a stiffer All Mountain Freestyle Binding with no issues. I don't know if Flux has another model that's geared more towards someone like me looking for that middle of the road setup.

Boots: This is already a separate topic on this in the Boots thread but it looks like i'm going to be sticking with 32's and finding a good pair made for All Mountain Freestyle.

Few specs about me if I didn't already mention them,,,

5'7 195-215 Size 12 shoe. probably 11.5 boot Looking for a good all mtn freestyle setup.


Thanks for any input guys.

For the TRS get the 59.

For Flux go with the SF45's. The TT30's will be too soft under your weight.

If you're going with Union, at least the Atlas's baseplate will provide some dampening, the Force's doesn't.

From Flow look into the NX2 AT. And from Ride the Capo.

Snowboarding Is...

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

Hey Nivek, Thanks for the awesome response. Would you consider Ride and Flow to be on say the "Same Level" As Union and Flux? I'm sure everyone has there own opinions but im sure there is somewhat of an overall feel for this.

Flow and Ride are just as good as Union and Flux, it jsut depends on what you are looking for in the binding and which binding you are looking at.
