Wings on the inside of your binding are going to give you more edge to edge response. The wings on the inside of your calves will give you leverage in the center of your stance for when your carving front to back. Wings on the outside will give you leverage on the outside of your calves so you can push up on them for when you tweaking tricks and getting wiggly.
The Flux DMCC light and DS30 have the asymetrical highback so you can switch them for a different feeling ride. Its not going to be as stiff and responsive as a full wing, but you will get a switch in leverage when you switch the left highback with the right highback.
The DMCC light is going to be a little stiffer and lighter weight than the DS30. Both the DS30 and DMCC light have the same highback and baseplate, but the DMCC light is carbon infused, and the DS30 is made from a mid-flex fiber glass. The DMCC light uses titanium hardware for lightweight and the DS30 uses tooless screws. If you care about lightweight, get the DMCClight. If you want to save some money, do the DS30... it will be almost the same feel.
I will say one thing for Switchback.... the tool-less is cool.... but Flux has been doing that for years.

I second the holograms been rocking them all year and love them. You can really tweak all your presses and grabs. I also really liked the ride deltas for park/all mtn also they don’t make them any more but you can find them from time to time.

Oh after looking at the 2013/2014 Flux catalog I'm replacing the two Fluxes with the Flux DL and DS. Both look better to me than the other Flux i had down.

Those will be available next season... I got the chance to ride the new semi winged highback and it is rad. Flux is known for having a highback that fits and wraps your boot a bit... and adding that little bit of a wing to the highback really adds a lot of leverage. The baseplate is bulked up and more responsive than the DS30 and DMCC light for this season but It is still going to be a mid flexing binding. Good luck choosing!

anyone else have any opinions on Ride Rodeos and Maestros as a park binding? Also does anyone else like the Solomon Holograms? How would they be on big kickers with those flexible heel cuffs?

OUr team has really liked the feel of the RL for next season.... it is light weight and pretty soft. The softest binding we have is going to be the RK... with the urethane in the highback. If you are looking for a soft binding to match a soft board I would recommend those. If you want something a little stiffer, I'd suggest the DS. Hope this helps!
