Can't get C60's--what do I want?

Would LOVE a pair of C60's for my Prior MFR. You can buy S or L all day--no medium to be had it seems. SO...what would you folks do? Boots are IONs. Stiff, responsive, & fairly comfy are what I'd need. Looking at Calibers, El Hefes, and even thinking about the NX2-RSs. HELP!
Thanks all!

The Diode replaced the C60 in our line.
The theory behind binding is the same, it just has more underfoot flex now with Re:Flex and a highback that hurts less due to a new shape and way less forward lean built into the highback.

If you like a lot of forward lean, you can still get as much as you used to by adjusting it at the highback rotation slots.

Welcome to forum burton bindings - do you have a brother or sister named burton boards that can join? We get lots of questions about those too.

It's really up to those departments if they want to jump on and straighten shit out for people. there's also a lot of hesitation because generally speaking, we don't want to have to field other questions that other departments are paid to deal with and have far more insight into; customer service, warranty, inventory etc..
i'll ask the product managers of those groups if they want to start up an account.
in the mean time; we're here.

I had beers with some of the Rome guys over the weekend.
haven't seen anything but heard that Rome bindings are simplifying some of their parts next year, which, to me, is a step forward.
most of those guys are really good friends of mine and speaking personally, i think they make a pretty damn good product.

On that note when I look at the C60's vs the diodes it seems like there has been a major simplification/design change, e.g. fwd lean adjustment now integrated vs being a seperate set of parts on the highback. The base seems a lot simpler too. Is this a trend?
