tonicusa I heard that the Flux bindings are going to have flexible base plates next year. If that's true then that will make those bindings a real contender as the only thing that really bothered me about them was the noticeable dead spot. The bindings are so flexible and when you add that rigid base plate it feels more noticeable.

tonicusa The NOW Selects. It's more than just the foot bed, it's the overall design and quality of construction. Hence they are a little heavier than all of the others mentioned but surprisingly just as fun and freestyle capable. The highback isn't giant and the frame design allows for lateral movement.

Lord have mercy. Nice!

I'm starting to feel hard landings on my left knee. Which has the most damping in your opinion, if you have one.

Now Selects are on my radar, so is the Contact Pro.

You still get that feeling of being able to ride with your feet, it's just a little less fun for lack of a better word. The trade off is you can blast the pipe with them, hit bigger jumps etc. I prefer them over my reflex Malavitas.

But I must say the Holograms are more fun if you are someone that doesn't need the performance of the Quantum like a park dude who isn't hitting booters or riding pipe much.

I'm going to use the Holograms for my fun board and I have the Quantums on my Capita NAS which is a nice combination. Really fun in the pipe.
Did you not end up getting any contacts?

I've definitely never had a binding that I noticed less though, so comfort was top-notch and ratchets were nice.

tonicusa I bought via Dogfunk so I will exchange them if they aren't right.
And I can live with a little soft or a little stiff, its pop Im after. Riding all camber I like anything that helps actuate the tail quickly and crisply.

Mystery2many Triple8 is right. You have to really want that kind of feel. But this is a perfect example of different preferences. His friends and I love them while him and others don't enjoy that sort of flex. Honestly it's not even a waste of money to try them a ride a few times to see if it's your cup of tea. And if not sell them.
