Yeah if the phantoms were canted i would jump strait on them. The airbags sound great but are they as durable as the eva padding? Leaning towards the blackhawks at the moment as i want to try canted bindings. How will the blackhawks go in the park. I love pipe and kickers but have also started having fun on the easy boxes.
Thanks all!

Hey Nivek. Just checking are you saying the company and the blackhawks will be around the same stiffness? Thanks

Yeah thats actually the only thing i don't like about my Phantoms, i wish they were canted like my Targas. They are however an awesome binding and although i don't have a huge amount of days on them i cant see the airbags being unreliable. I weigh 265lbs and they seem to support my weight just fine.

Honestly couldn't comment on the blackhawks in the park, sorry.

my names's Petey and i have gigantic balls

Nope, Company would land between the Machine and Blackhawk.

Canter?

Hey, just wondering what the canter is? I tried to order Blackhawks last year but could only get phantoms. So ended with phantoms. My girlfriend just got Blackhawks today, and I can't seem to see a real big difference in them apart from the air bags on the phantoms. I have really bad knees and by sound of it Canter could be a good thing!

Cheers!
