K2 WWW Rocker and T. Rice C2

I just picked up a 152 K2 WWW Rocker at my local shop. Couldn't pass it up because it was the alternative color and they only had the one. So my big question is what bindings? I know that this is a heavily debated topic on this forum and mainly comes down to personal preference. Although I have been riding for awhile now, this is my first park board. The guy at my local shop said the Ride Nitrane Contrabands are a great park binding. Obviously 390s are a popular binding as well. Anyone have any other lightweight, durable bindings that will be good for rails and boxes?

On another topic, I currently have a K2 Zero with Ride NRC bindings as my all mountain board. I am fairly certain I am going to order the Lib Tech Travis Rice C2 Power Banana and throw some Ride CADs on there? Anyone been on that board yet or use the CADs before? I love my NRCs and the CADs seem to be the same just a little stiffer. Any takes on this set-up?

BTW I live in Icy NY which is why I was looking at the libtech

Also I can't help but want the NS F1-R...which would be better for cruising the mountain hitting natural kickers and doing tree runs? the C2 or F1?

Union Forces. And what shop did you go to?

Also, look into Burton Cartels or customs. I am personally not a fan boy of burton by any means, but they are solid bindings none the less.

Only shop semi close to me is Ski Company. I live in Oswego so it's about a 45 minute drive.

I have been looking at Union forces a lot. Seems every review I read gives the same comment; bomb proof. Which probably helps when beating shit up in the park. They are a mid flex binding correct?

Ski company in 'cuse i'd assume? Snow Ski and Board (the company i manage the shop for) and Ski co. are owned by the same people.

Anyhow, the forces are mint. I rode the same pair for 3 years and they never gave me a problem. Also, they come with a lifetime warrenty on the baseplates. Which i don't know if you have ever broken a baseplate before...but it blows.

And yes, they are a mid-flex binding. They ride awesome. You won't regret getting them.

Yes, Ski Company in Cuse.

Awesome. Guess I'll grab those to toss on my WWW.

Seeing how you manage a shop, any thoughts on NS F1-R or the Lib-tech T. Rice C2? Really can't decide between the two of them... I'm sure whatever one I get I'll like but still looking for suggestions. Pretty much looking for it to just ride the mountain, hit natural jumps/cliffs and hold well on the ice

I would say go with the t-rice. I have ridden it and loved it. I have heard good things about NS... But i just wouldn't choose it over the lib ever.

the premier is going to be more "surfy" than the t.rice, has a full-wrap edge, more fiberglass, more warranty, more everything

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU
