A stiffer binding makes things sketchy at high speed? Is this because you cannot "feel" the board the same way?

So, if you have a fairly soft board; especially torsionally, a stiff binding will make the control very very touchy. It becomes extremely easy to oversteer.
Good explanation. Thank you. Also sent you a PM some time ago - check your inbox

Yeah the difference is noticeable. With the atlas the highback twists evenly both ways. On the SL the highback twists inward easier and is more rigid outwards and makes a good combo of comfort and response.
