So looks like im going formulas or phantoms. I have to buy online and have found some med formulas but unsure if they will fit my size 9 boots. Can anyone confirm i will need large or will get by with mediums?
Thanks all

Just checking as the size chart shows medium goes up to 8 while large starts at 8? Still considering the phantoms at this point as large formulas are harder for me to find.

Right sorry, large is 8-11. Eveyone uses different sizes, I get confused sometimes.

Hey again
Had my mind set on formula's but cant find any my size at a good price. But have found some companies. Can anyone tell me how they compare? I also have found some blackhawks and 390 bosses at around the same price! Any better than the other? Or i could save $80 and get some phantoms? Any help would be great. What would you pick and why?

Thanks. I thought the phantoms were more freestyle and would be softer than the blackhawks? Im keen to try canted binding but am still tempted by the phantoms. Having a hard time deciding as i can get the phantoms cheaper than the others. Can anyone comment on the k2 company bindings ?

Blackhawks are definitely stiffer than Phantoms, not a ton, but stiffer. And the Company is the stiffest in the K2 line. In between the Phantom and Machine.

That totally trips me out, as bsercka post says softer while the quote says stiffer (yes I know it was edited).

Blackhawks are considered a stiffer binding but I found them softer than the 390 boss. That's just my own experience.

I'm still shocked at how stiff/responsive the 390 Bosses are. The blackhawks are nice. Canting, comfortable and not terribly stiff. I paired it up with a Coda.

I wish it had airbags because I really want to try them out but the Blackhawks were a good binding. Great ratchets too. My favorite so far.

I haven't ridden the blackhawks but i have owned the boss's and own the phantoms now and i can't believe the 390's are stiffer than the blackhawks. To me the 390's are waaaaay softer than the phantoms, like a shit load softer. I switched the 390's after 2 days for the targas (which are similar to phantoms but a tad stiffer).
