Default 2 boards sharing the same binding and boots, possible?

Hi,

I currently have a Salomon Pulse 156 Board with Firefly A5 S/M bindings and a pair of 8 1/2 Burton Invader boots. I am planning to buy a powder board like the Salomon Powder Snake or Sick Stick. Can I use the Firefly bindings and the Burton boots for the powder board? I will only use one board at a time anyway.

As long as the boards have the same 2x4 screw system and the width of the board fits the S/M sized bindings, i can use the Firefly bindings. Am I right?

this may sound like a stupid question but I really need some confirmation =D

I would assume as long as they have matching hardware. some baseplates are thicker than others, so I would imagine each binding set will provide you with different screws, but other than that I'm sure the hardware is the same as long as they both have the same set up (2x4)

your fine, not sure what that guy means about baseplate thicknesses, you are using the same binding so the baseplate is the same.

just stay away from burton boards as they are the only ones with a different hole pattern. sick stick, or its budget brother the powdersnake are good boards.

Boots are fine; you can switch bindings too, but I predict that you'll find this is a pain unless you rarely get the chance to go out in powder in which case it wouldn't happen often. If you can find some used bindings at decent price it's a lot less time messing around with the screwdriver to have two pairs.

I assume the Sick Stick/ Powder Snake/ Pulse all have the same distance between their 2 x 4 holes for screws?? So that my bindings will fit into all 3 boards?

Sick Stick and Powder Snake, whats the main difference between them, apart from the fact that the powder snake would be cheaper?

I see, what models of bindings will be the best for the 2 powder boards?

I dont have any experience with the sick stick, but i own a powder snake and I love it. its a directional twin, floats pow like a dream, and still does pretty damn good on groomers. I'd recommend it. I used the same bindings (flow flite 3's) on it as i did on my k2 board and didnt have any issues with it.

If your bindings fit the pulse, it should fit either powder snake/sick stick. the pulse has a 4x4 insert pattern and the powder/stick has a 4x2 but that shouldn't matter.

I don't have experience with either though, so I don't know if that binding/board combo would work well together.
