Hahahaha 35cm overnight at Whistler... my mind was on pow at work today!!

But yea that sort of setup is exactly what i was looking for. Kinda difficult to explain, because people either like lots of response... or pure mid-flex. Maybe Burton has it with the full zero lean and Reflex... But these NOW guys got it down.

Oh and i'm also a surf & skate background, from the Caribbean. I only met snow a couple yrs ago

For pure pow surfing, any binding would work for me as well. But as soon as terrain changes on and on (rocks to evade, tracked out gullies, exposed traverses, wind blown ice crusts) I prefer to have immediate response.
The terrain I ride at bachy is not open glade pow, it's natural features, trees, tight trees and tons of gullies that change direction as your dropping. I need stiff responsive bindings, especially when the snow is fast and your coming up on different features quick.

Riding volcanos is fun.

timmytard That's why I have a swallow tail No-board.

Cause really when it's tits deep, they're totally unnecessary.

You only need bindings for everything else.

I used to run c60s everywhere , now have diodes instead but got genesis for my soft snow/powder setup, I think it's a better match.

We'll see. I know me, i know if i get any other bindings, i'll end up getting the NOWs later anyways Especially if they're at a good deal through a hookup.
