Up to you. Evo if you're really park oriented, Proto if you want something good all-around.

Its for sure something that needs to change. And we're workin on it But hope I can help out... let me know if ya have any questions. The DS30 is going to give you that surfy ride. A lot of our riders choose it for all mountain riding... I don't think you should have a problem. If you're looking to move to something stiffer, found I like the SF a lot too.

I have the DS30's on a 2013 Arbor Westmark and love it! Good flex but still responsive. As the Blacklist is just a wide Westmark I am sure you will enjoy the DS30's

You would probably have a lot of fun in the DS's.... Flux is known for having a good fitting binding... real snug. Adding the little semi-wing on the highback really does a lot as far as leverage and control when buttering around and taking the path less traveled. The bulked up baseplate did a lot for response too....
The TT is going to be a bit more responsive than the DS... if you are into that... you'd like the TT. I actually found that I like the response I get for a stiffer binding. I like things quick!
Let me knwo if you have any other questions!

Can you list, in order of flex, 2014 bindings?



Might help those trying to figure out which binding.

The catalog does list flex ratings but we know those aren't usually accurate.

Sure thing..... hope this makes sense. Let me know if you have any questions.
For Flux 2014----
DM - lightest weight (carbon infused), most responsive highback/baseplate.
SF - most responsive highback/baseplate, (about the same stiffness as DM but made from high density fiberglass... not carbon).
DL - lightweight (carbon infused) most responsive baseplate, high/medium stiffness in highback (semi-wing)
DS - high/medium stiffness in baseplate, high/medium stiffness in highback (semi-wing)
TT - medium stiffness in baseplate, medium stiffness in highback
RL - soft highback, medium baseplate.
RK - softest highback (urethane), medium baseplate
PR - soft highback, soft baseplate.

WOMENS:
GM: stiffest highback, stiff baseplate.
GL : medium highback, medium baseplate
GU : softest highback (urethane), soft baseplate.

That actually helps a lot! You should bookmark that and just copy/paste on all future Flux threads

Now I need to wait for reviews for the Rossignol Rocknrolla to see how stiff/flexible it is. Thinking the RL with it, depending on flex.
