Evil Twin is pretty nice for all-mountain riding.

How did the NOW bindings ride with the TBT? Was there any delay engaging edges?

Default eh

From my experience its really a pushover. I think where the bindings contacted the board were already lifted off the snow. So to really have the energy transfer to the edges you would have to be in a very far, tight, lean (45 degrees maybe??!?!)

Demo it before you commit would be my advice. It is definitely love/hate with TBT.
