I think they're pretty responsive. I ride groomers, some steep stuff, powder, glades, bumps, small terrain features... and it seems to do well for all of that. On the highback of my Formulas, the inside part of it is stiff while the outer part is softer with a grill/mesh type pattern with the plastic. Supposedly the stiffer part is supposed to make the binding more responsive while the outer mesh part makes it a little softer to tweak the bindings for presses and stuff. I guess it does kind of work since I can do some presses or butters... and carving is good too.

But like I said before, I haven't tried many bindings so I won't be able to give you a good comparison. I read a lot of feedback and reviews before I bought the Formulas. Most people seemed to like them... I also read good things about the 390s and Forces too. Haha... maybe just get the ones that are cheaper or has the colors you like.

I always use Ride bindings simply because of the aluminum.

Used to rock Ride bindings, but after having to deal with base plate and heel cup separations I switched over to Flux's.

i ride formulas... i was pretty harsh on them at first but i've put them through a lot of punishment this season and they're holding up pretty well, lots better than my board is =D

Solid purchase if you go there

Grats m8! I've made the same "mistake"..
I already have NS Evo-R (08/09). But the -50% deal on Sierrascope got me. I've ordered Union Contacts too to pair the Scope.
Dunno what to do now, may be I'll make a gift for the friend of mine.

after you ride it please make a review thread comparing the evo-r and the sierrascope. i was torn between the 2 until i found the insidescope coupon making the sierrascope cheaper. i was planning on an evo-r as my next board but i like my capita so much brand loyalty might not let me switch.

There is an issue.. i'll get it shipped in 2-2,5 weeks. If you can wait so long - i'll do my best (but I'm afraid Sierrascopes could be sold out. 250bucks sounds sweet for such stick!).

Have you read review made by Shayboarder: Snowboard Review: 09-10 Capita Sierrascope FK – Shayboarder.com?
