Tuan209 Ive been riding on K2 Formulas for the last two years and then switched to Salomon Hologram. The Holograms do not have canting and I do notice a bit of pain on my knees now. Dont know if its binding related or if I am pushing myself harder in the park....

The Factories are cush. I'm a big dude, 33 with bad knees and they are exceptionally comfortable and damp, but also very responsive. I'd be surprised if you didn't like them. But everyone's preferences are different I suppose. I got mine in December and am planning on riding them for a least another whole season or two.

linvillegorge Large for Flux. My old Titans are a medium and worked great with my old Salomon F22s that were low volume, but on my new boots, they're completely maxed out and I still have to set the discs back one hole to center them up. It's fair to say that they barely fit.

I've actually been using my old Burton Triads more than my Flux this season. My buddy has had my Flux bindings for over half the season. I think I may just give them to him once I buy some new ones. A binding that soft really doesn't fit on any board I own at this point once I sell my NS Proto.

What size flux are you? SF S & M for $175 on zappos. I was after these too in a large but missed out.

You tried K2? I've had great time on the Formula this season. Great no nonsense binding, 3 degs canting, great cush, and so easy to set up and use.

Ideally that would be the Flux DL, but as much as I love them, Flux has damn near priced themselves out of my wheelhouse.
Flux DL $250 now on dogfunk...

readimag It is fine you can butter on any binding but for me anything with wingbacks works way better.

Grabber How is buttering on the factories?

Hate to go away from Flux, but the models I'd be looking at have just gotten too pricey for my liking and an older used model wouldn't have canting.
I'm a huge fan of the Factories, but if you're looking for something with a very similar feel on a budget, keep an eye out for the Restricted Cartels from 11/12. The black & white ones with the cushy asym strap.
