All-Mountain Board My Last Question

Sorry for being annoying i decided to make this question my last. So please dont complain this time and please answer for the last time Anyways, i decided to go soft, with Union Contact. Here are my questions

1.Is it ok to rider soft board/bindings with stiff boots or shoudl i just make them all stiff( i cant change my boots cuz i already have them)

2.Is SL-R considered soft for an All-mountain board? Or should i get EVO-R instead of SL-R if i want softer board?(i dont want it too soft)

3.Under $500, is there any better choice than sl-r for myself? (I heard Lib Tech is good) Please list your reason why it's better thx

For Info

God damnit dude, keep it to one thread holy crap.


All the information you need is in every thread you have made under all the accounts you have created, not to mention there is a surplus of information on the web regarding your questions of stiffness of a board/bindings/boots.

Just to cut through the crap. Dude don't over think these things.

1.You will overflex soft bindings with super stiff boots.

2. Don't over think these things. I bet you will not even be able to tell the difference between the two boards.

3. Again don't over think these things. Go with the evo-r or sl-r to not over think it. GNU is good too just kinda glance at their all mountain boards and if something grabs your eye maybe look into it. Again I bet you will not be able to tell the difference.

The main thing is dont over think it. Whatever you find within a general area of boards will work for you. Did I mention to not over think it? Which is exactly what your doing right now

To restate this post in simple terms...

Don't over-think it.

Yeah seriously its supposed to be fun. As long as you got something you can make the most of it. I have as much fun shredding on my GNU Street series that I picked up for 140$ as my never summer Legacy-r for 500$

i just want to also state that the sl-r will feel softer than most boards because of the RC tech. so it will "feel" soft already. either way u go you be happy. i suggest the SL if it is ur only board
