Isn't it true that the stiffer bindings are more responsive which is important for freeride, while a little flex is better for park?

Sorry if the answer is obvious, I've been riding one setup my whole life with no plans of getting a park setup until this year.

I think I'm going to go with Customs on my new burton twin, rather than cartels which I've been debating about.

My friend just got a set of customs...And they are too flexable. I didnt really like them. I like my Sims that I got, they are stiff.

Personally for an all mountain setup I like a binding that is more to the flexible side. Gives you a little more forgiveness in awkward situations such as running trees and the like. Actually the only time I really miss have a stiff binding is at speed and on hard pack/ice.
