And I may look into those heelcups to try on my 2013 IPOs I have on my Skate Banana.

Thanks to all for the input!
I've heard nothing but amazing things about how they work with their customers. So bad ass. Glad to hear your stoked. One other thing to keep in mind is the drive only come with medium abd hard bushings but if you want to soften it even more at some point just get a set of the soft bushings. Enjoy.

You'll like them…

Triple8Sol Having both bindings in question, I'd def recommend the Drive for your application. I actually just sent my IPO's in for warranty, so have been using the Drive on all my boards, and it works great. I'm going to get next year's Drive as well and use that for my freeride boards, and use this year's Drive on the freestyle decks.

I wear Ride Tridents - their stiffest rated boots.

I think I'm more confused now than when I started this thread.

I have the Drives and coming from CO2's, they are not even close to stiff.

I'd go middle of the road, the highback is short, and softer than it should be(which is why they trickled it down to the select next year" and replaced it with a taller, stiffer highback going forward.)

The straps are comfortable, ratchets are great, and the dampening is excellent.

I'm sure they'll suit your needs for that board perfectly.

I'm also a bigger guy 6ft 215 and put a lot of weight into my turns and love the stiffness but also what the binding does. Hope that makes sense.
