A little concernered about my binding purchase!
I purchased some Forum Arenas recently. They haven't quite arrived yet but already I'm starting to worry they might be a bit too stiff for my riding style / board.
My board is a Forum Destroyer (yes, I like Forum) so it's medium flex. It's a great park board with some limits when it comes to freeriding. The Arenas however, are Forums stiffest binding. The reason I chose the Arenas over Forums mre flexible bindings such as the Republic or Faction is because I wanted a stiffer binding. But now I'm beginning to wonder if they are too stiff!
I do like responsive bindings. I don't like bindings that are too flexible. To me they feel cheap, and I like quick response when changes edges. But with my medium-flex board, the Arenas may not be the perfect match when it comes to jumps. I hardly do rails, but rails are something I wouldn't mind doing more of in the future. My current bindings are an old pair of Burton 2000 Custom Freestyles.
