Just picked up a 157 T.Rice from Evo and put a new pair of Flow NXT-FRX bindings on it. Bindings match up perfectly from a color scheme point of view. Gonna get out tonight and give it a go.......

2012/2013 setup pics!

Cracked my Rossignol Angus 2012 and they sent me a new 2014 model as a replacement. Pretty sweet board if you ask me. Great customer service as well

How are you liking the Contact Pros with the Raptor?
i used the contact pro/NS Cobra for about 5 sessions this year and i thought it was awesome...

but now, the contact pro/ns Raptor combo just wow'd me.. board reacted how i wanted it to react and real smooth on high speeds.. took it out in Blue Mountain yesterday in 50 degree all slush conditions and it exceeded my expectations much higher than the Cobra did..

this setup should last me for a while.. unless i get a good deal on the 2014 Union Charger

Hey as I am looking at the Contact Pro for next season so thought I would ask you this, are the Contact Pros and Charges not total opposite spectrum of bindings? I though the Pros had a very freestyle feel, aka a softer high back, and the Chargers are well...a still ass Charger? Just curious on your decision to be looking at the Chargers if you love the Pros? Thank you for any info!

if i remember correctly, the contact pro's are the 2nd lightest (MCs are the lightest, Union rep confirmed this for me a year ago before the Charger came out) and stiffest 'freestyle' bindings Union makes.. those are the two reasons i decided to go with the CPs.. (the Flites are the softest freestyle bindings Union makes, i believe)

now that im realizing that im purely happy with freeriding and honed my skills to a level that i can properly use the Charger, then i wouldnt mind buying it next year IF i get a good deal for them.. but for now, im loving the CP/Raptor combo, so it would take a really good deal for me to cough up $$ for the Charger when the CPs are doing a phenomenal job for me

Since I only paid $160 shipped for the new 2012 model, I'm impressed. I like this board more than my Ride DH2.

It's older, but I got to ride it 2.5 times before this season due to the Achilles.
It's '07 k2 union 164 mid-wide with ride lx bindings. Rode it with '11 Salomon Faction Boas. Looking for stiffer gear for next season.
