Default Flux DS30's too soft for Arbor Blacklist?

I mainly ride east coast groomers and go in the park maybe 10% of the time. I tend to find every natural jump or odd side trails, and like to butter and goof around with ground tricks. In the flux lineup, are DS30's too soft? Should I go with the TT30 instead or a different brand all together?

I'd go with the TT30s. They're already plenty soft enough. I originally bought them for my Evo and now that I've sold the Evo and have a Proto, I'm probably gonna go with some SF45s. The TT30s are about slap wore out anyway. They're actually the Titans, which became the TT30.

Flux bindings tend to run on the softer side, so keep that in mind. The TT30s are a great all-mountain/freestyle binding. I've never tried the DS30s, but I have to think they'd be pretty jib-tastic.

Depends on what you like. If you like a softer ride them the DS30's will be great. Personally I'd wait till 2014 and get the pseudo winged new model. The RL I think.

Yeaa... the names are so Japanese... but the semi-wing is going to be on the DL and DS for 2014.... The RL for 2014 is similar to the DS30 from 2013. It is going to be a softer highback because of the milled out sections in the highback. It is made out of a stiffer material though, so its not the softest in the line up. I ride my DS30 when I'm trying to get surfy... I ride the SF when I want more response. Hope this helps!

But for real, Flux and their weird naming system not to mention constantly changing it creates a shit ton of confusion. I liked the old Titan, Distortion, etc. naming system better. No one except Flux fanboys understands the new system and I'm a fanboy and can't hardly keep up with it.

As a Flux employee... its hard to keep up with the names. Hahah our US office has been pushing to get a new system for the names for a long time-- but its difficult since our headquarters in Japan is totally cool with the names. They have no problems with people being confused? But that's Japan for ya. Things are a bit different. From here forth... we are trying to keep the names consistent. We dropped the numbers... since that doesn't mean anything anymore, and we are doing two letter names for all the bindings for 14 and beyond. The DM will remain our sturdy all mountain bindings... the DL will remain our lightest weight freestyle binding.... and so on and so forth.
Let me know if you have any specific questions

honestly this is my problem and why I'm having so much trouble deciding on a binding from Flux. I picked up some purple DS30's from my local store, hoping for that surfy feel on a arbor blacklist. I plan on getting a different board (maybe a proto HD) later this year for a little stiffer ride.
