Default NOW IPO/Bataleon TBT

Have a question for those who have tried NOW IPOs as well as Bataleon boards.

I ride Bataleons and like them.
Considering a Now binding.

It seems like NOW kingpin technology would give a similar feel to how TBT boards rock from edge to edge.

If I already have a TBT board, does it make sense to use a NOW binding? It seems it would be more of the same and not worth adding King Pin tech to TBT.

Would appreciate comments from those who know.

Was thinking about the same question a couple of times as well. I've seen someone posting in another thread that he doesn't like NOW's plus TBT.
Looking forward to some experiences.

Might have been me.I'm not really a fan of it. The issue may have been that it was a soft board with tbt. I'm going to try it on my ET at some point this season thought

Any updates on TBT/ NOW combo?
Still curious.

I've had NOW bindings, and had every Bataleon imaginable, but not together. In my mind putting the 2 together would be overkill.

I tried it on my Evil Twin and undisputed. I didnt like the combo unless I had the hard bushing in, then it felt pretty normal.

I love NOW bindings, i dont think they are very useful on a board with TBT. On a board without it they really change how the ride feels, on a board with it they are meh and not really worth the price.
