Disaster Help

Looking for binding advice for a Bataleon Disaster 156. I will run small park only hills in MN, you hit like 3-5 features and head back up the tow rope. The biggest kicker I hit is at most 20ft. I weigh 215lbs.

Others recommended the 390 Boss but Iíve broken 2 sets of Rome bindings by over tightening the screws and stripping the plastic heel loop indention for the nuts. Stupid user error by being in a hurry but I donít want that issue again.

Thinking about Flux RK30, DS30, Raiden Zero, or Contact Pro 2014ís. I can wait until next year if the new Proís seem interesting. Any other suggestions would be great as well. But going through the archives these seem to always come up for Jib. Nivek always says the Flow Quattro as well Ė but that seems like no tech at all Ė but maybe thatís OK or I have no idea.

How lateral flexy is the Zero Highback?

Is the RK30 too mushy given my size, I know the highback is super flexy laterally but will the spine hold on hard landings? Thanks in advance.

Iím a newb but have been lurking for a while, thanks to wolf for all the technical advice he puts up here for free, really helped when I was learning, my kids as well.

Hey MN

Which part of the binding did you strip, the heel hoop or baseplate? The heel hoops are made of aluminum and super hard to strip out.

Either way - we can get you replacements for them no sweat. Just hit up the warranty site at Rome Warranty and we'll get you some new ones.

I have plain mobs - so its the synthetic plastic stuff in the heel loop. Appreciate the offer but - it was totally my fault, you guys should not be on the hook for idiot error.

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. You got the manufacturer saying they will hook you up. All you have to do is email them. I am guessing they probably have excess spare parts and wouldn't mind getting them off their books.

We're happy to help out, it's really no problem.

The 390's are an entirely different story compared to the Mobs. While the Mobs are almost entirely plastic, most of the hard points on the 390 are aluminum based, or on the baseplate which is super strong as well. Don't think we've ever heard any stripping issues, except maybe on hardware when using the wrong size driver.

I think this thread reinforces sticking with Rome just buy ones with the aluminum base.
