I'm now def getting the Katanas and Drives, I considered the O-Drives but imagine they may just be too stiff for my liking.

booron Hey man,

I know you had a very specific question. But as the OP I just wanted to say I wound up getting some Diodes at the tail end of last season and put about 8 days on them with the Skunky and they kicked ass...but I like IT stiff as fuck...

xIceHoundx thread revival. So im actually looking at picking up the 2014/15 Skunk Apes HP and was also looking to get a new set of bindings as well and seems like you guys have been mentioning NOW quite a bit. Currently I ride a 2014 Lib Tech T.Rice Pro HP 164.5 with 2014 Union Contact Pros and love how it rides and feels, im 230 lbs 73in size 12 boots btw so looking at picking up probably a 169 skunk apes HP, good choice? How will those NOW drives feel compared to Union Contact Pros?

booron Well last post..I was little bit drunk...

Have two days in on the Genesii. Ankle strap fastened to top-most holes. Highbacks rotated so far as to be difficult to fold down. Unimpressed with response, there's a definite, unsettling "no-mans-land" on edge transitions. Also, the footbeds keep bunching up. I've got them extended to the maximum, and the front piece keeps sliding back into the binding from kicking my heel back while strapping in...

Diodes have dropped to $260, I got drunk and ordered some of those last night. Kind of afraid they're going to kill me... If any of you are in Minneapolis area and want some Burton bindings keep an eye on CL...

booron OK, just mounted the Genes(i? is'?) up on the Skunk Apes, non-horsepower. Mystery Van, blue and green....not too bad looking with it... Not impressed with the build quality of the Genesis, same as Mission. Assuming we're paying for new fangled ratchets and 2 piece high back. Two piece high back appears to be connected with pop-rivets, apparently everyone thought this would break last year, but no reports of actual breakage...looks, feels cheap... Ratchet system feels awesome, I can completely distort toe box and ankle area of my Imperials by tightening down, makes my boots feel too big, could not do this with Missions...

Timmytard is no doubt by far the biggest hoarder boarder on this board! It's crazy what that dude has.

All of mine are in my sig except the new Ape. In order of purchase: 07 GNU 11up 162w (trad camber with magnetraction!), 12 GNU Carbon Credit 162w, 13 Lib Banana Magic 158w, 13 GNU Eco Genetics 162, 13 Lib Birdman 180 (prob my fave board, very cool), 13 Lib T Rice Banana Hammock 164, 14 Lib Skunk Ape HP 165w. I'd like a 169 Ape HP along with the 169 Ape split coming out next year. I'd also like a short Skate Banana for parkin' and maybe a Riders Choice or something with asym.


Real life skunk ape right here, buddy.
