Mizu Kuma Pretty sure the highback on the DS has a softer lateral flex than the TT, but coupled with a similar 30% blend base plate!!!!!

linvillegorge I have the TTs and I love them for a softer board or mid-flex board but they don't have quite enough stiffness once you get into the mid-stiff boards. I haven't tried the DS but I'm pretty sure Flux rates it about the same as the TT in flex.

They have way too many bindings on the soft side. Basically everything not the SF and DM falls somewhere between the RK and TT. Fuck all that shit. Trim some of the fat and make an actual mid-flex binder. Mid-way between the TT and SF. I'd buy the damn thing right now.

People who have been here awhile know that I'm probably the biggest Flux fanboy here, but I'm just speaking the truth on this one.
Hey linvillegorge, what Flux bindings you settle on then? What are your favorites and why? Have you tried the DS as a mid range flex binding?

If Flux can give us the Cartel version of their bindings I would definitely buy as well. Again, I love what they do but the SF for me was rigid at times. I know it's meant to be responsive but I got a lot of calf bite and it just felt way too stiff. Anyone like the DS ? Or is that still too stiff?

Mizu Kuma Don't forget that as was mentioned earlier, that the SF (along with other models) have Asymmetric Highbacks than can be swapped over to soften the lateral flex, along with dampeners that can be added/removed from the baseplate to also change the flex!!!!!

Mizu Kuma The TT is Flux's Mid Flex binder!!!!!

It's softer than the SF, and stiffer than an RK!!!!!

As for rotatin high backs, they'll still perform if ya don't, it's just that it'll change how responsive they are both when usin heel side pressure, and lateral flex!!!!!

Some binders are made to be stiff when heel side pressure is applied for edge response, yet laterally flex from side to side very easily to be able to bone those tricks in the park when needed!!!!!

Changin the way the high back's flex is all down to comfort and personal taste at the end of the day!!!!!

That's why they have so many little holes to screw in so many different ways!!!!!

linvillegorge Flux > Union

It's pretty much that simple. That's more of a praise for Flux than a knock on Union.

snowklinger I like that FLUX is Japanese. Everything they do is awesome (except Pearl Harbor I guess).
