poutanen I'd put diodes on but I like to carve a lot and would want the stiffest binding. Any of the above should be good methinks...

The-Snoopy Thx for the info guys :-D..

Which EST binding would you put on in ?.. Cartel,Genesis or Diode and why ?..

/Cheers

Racer20 5'7" 180lbs, I had a 2010 C-X and now have a 2011 C-X, both 157.

I really like it, but it can be a bit unforgiving in bumped-up or thicker snow. I've ridden quite a bit of powder on them . . . after some experimentation, I found that setting the rear binding all the way back and setting the front to get the stance width I want is the best for riding powder.

The-Snoopy It sounds like most of you agree..

160 for more freestyle

164 for pow but i still have the 163 flow

Both with cartel's

/Cheers

Are there any one obvious im missing if its still have to be awesome freeride/carving on groomers and perform good in pow ?

+1, they got rid of the T6/T7 series which was light, stiff and cambered (with plenty of advanced materials tech)...

Makes my EST bindings kinda useless as now I'm looking at alternates for a stiff advanced freeride board.

Snowhound wanted to know the stiffest burton flying V board - I think it would be the Mystery, which would still not be as stiff as the custom X

Maybe the Mystery?


Antler has lots of tech but they say its softer than the Custom X
