will i like my new board/bindings?
i just bought a new setup. i am a fairly aggressive rider, i like to cruise and carve, bomb the mountain, and i dont spend much time in the park. i pretty much suck at riding switch and doing tricks but i like to mess around and practice while i ride with slower friends.
i love my old board, 07/08 Lib Tech Travis Rice 161.5 powder model with Ride Beta Bindings.
my new board, Never Summer Premiere F1 159 with Flux Distortion Bindings.
I went into my local shop looking for advice. i wanted a new set up that would be different than my old board, i dont want to completely shelf my old board but get something with a noticeably different feel. after much debate, the guy talked me into never summer and flux.
i have concerns about both the board and the bindings and still have time to trade them out if necessary. i have no doubt that this board will be great for freeriding, but will it work against me when i try to get better riding switch/landing switch?
are these bindings going to be too soft for me and end up being quickly replaced with a stiffer pair (without being able to return them)? i read that the flux distortions are great for the park and the guy still insisted they were right for me and i would love them despite me telling him that i wont be riding the park.
any thoughts and advice would be much appreciated, especially before my 14 day return window closes.
