Default Powder board/binding compatibility -- stiffer or softer?

With a powder board, is it preferable for the bindings to be more on the stiff end of the spectrum or more on the flexible end of the spectrum? Can you give a couple of examples of each type?

Personal preference really. I know that Gigi says he rides Contacts cause he likes the flex, and he's not exactly a jibber.

Whatever you want I guess. Contacts and Conta's are some of the softest, CAD's, Force MC's and Auto Evers are on the stiffer side.

Is that something you would want for riding deep pow?

I go Arsenals for my powder riding. I would never go softer. The last thing you want is what Legally said. You get a delay from when you try to turn to when your board responds, and when you're up to your knees in powder it can mess you up.

I prefer stiffer side of bindings for all my riding needs, certainly no drawbacks riding powder in burton cartels.

I prefer stiff in powder also, makes less work when carving in pow

Stiffer and more responsive sounds resonable to me. Thanks for everyone's input.
