I really don't mind the waxing as long as i learn how to do it (which i intend to anyway). So that won't bother me. Those 2 boards do look great and im really enjoying reading reviews and more info on them.
Now i had plans on getting some Burton Missions to go with my board. Would those bindings be a good fit for that board? or should i consider something else? Flow? K2 Cinch? Others?
Good affordable bindings. Much better than the Missions in my opinion. The setup takes some time to adjust, but once you do, strapping in from that point on will be a breeze. The toe strap will tighten as you crank the ankle strap.
Another great pair of bindings would be Rome 390 or 390 Boss. The boss has canted footbed options which are really comfy once you find the right cant for your stance.
Totally agree with Leo on the 390/390 Boss. I threw a pair of 390's on my legacy and had the shop also add in the canted foot beds that you find in the boss and they are riding really well. They are super comfortable and responsive, and they didn't loosen up a bit through my first couple days out.
Same thing as with the NS boards, if you look around you can find this years 390's at some great prices and then price match them lower.
Hey bro, not a problem at all. Glad to help fellow shredders.
Leo.. I do have one more question regarding those boards before we wrap this up.
So im on the East Coast (RI) and the place where ive been riding has been mostly hard packed, groomed and loose granular. But and pow happens around here too.. So im wondering if the Raygun is really the board for me. Im wondering if the GNU CC is probably the best bet!?
Or maybe another board that will do well in all of those conditions. Opinions?
My local guys said the same thing about the Raygun/CC comparison, as we're up in Maine riding on crap usually. They said that while the Raygun is great, it's only shortfalls start popping up on icy hardpack, the Magnetraction will slice through that stuff no problem.
