alchemy 100% preference.
some people really like soft bindings in pow for a more surfy feel, others prefer something stiffer for faster response.
running no-back style will be about as loose and surfy as you can get.
Contact Pros are a good in between, loose/surfy under foot with all that padding, but still responsive.

Union contact pros are fine have them on my fish and jib board.

Not good for chop up snow conditions but powder is ok .

i've heard really good things about the now ipo's. my biggest concern is i did see a review where someone said if you're a size 10 boot there could be a sizing issue because you're right in between a medium & large size...i'm a 10.5 size boot. any thoughts on sizing?
10.5 = large

I wear a 10 and have the mediums and I'm right on the line between medium and large, neither are ideal. I went with the mediums for a tighter fit because I like to ride them without the highbacks, but I have to set them all the way back toward the heel edge to center them and I'm still ever so slightly toe heavy on them. Not enough to impact the ride, but not ideal.

They really need something in their lineup to fill the huge gap between the TT and the SF.

linvillegorge I ride my CS with either NOW IPOs or Burton Triads (an older binding that was essentially an upgraded Cartel).

out of curiosity what binding(s) do you have paired with the charlie slasher right now?
