tonicusa You will love them. I rode the NOW Selects on my Darker last year and it was a killer setup.

SnowDogWax Burton Diodes are great on my DarkerSeries board with Burton Driver boots. But the next $$$ I spend on binding will be Now Drives.....

tonicusa NOW bindings rock. I like them a lot more than my Cartels and they would be perfect for a Freeride setup. I like that the heel cup isn't sloppy on them. It's hard for me to ride plastic bindings after shredding with these things.

Supra cartels are fine btw

Casper I have Rome Targa on my Flag.

I have some Burton CO2 bindings and they are great. But they don't have canting so this is why I don't use them.


I saw mention of Rossi XV bindings. Presently my opinion is to shy from those.

I have them on my XV board but I am thinking of switching them out. Very easy to set up and seemed to be a solid binding. Although I had many too many occasions of trouble keeping the toes straps to stay over my toes.

I might adjust them for a longer boot than I wear and see if that helps....

I'm still completely torn between 3 bindings so any tips on the below would be great:

Burton Diode - the easy option, but all black is pretty dull, no canting and still the most expensive (329 euros)

Union T-rice Navigator - would look great on my flag, loads of cushioning, canted beds, nice and stiff, but worried about straps and ratchets based on old stories (249 euros)

Now Drive - really interested in the tech and the rave reviews, but slightly risky choice having never tried them plus fitting concerns (249 euros)

if I really had to choose right now, I'd probably opt for the unions but its seriously close and if anyone had any final words to help me decide that would be great!

Thanks
I can only speak on Unions, but not your specific binding in question. The upper strap is very comfortable on both my SL and Factory bindings. The ratchet issue isn't an issue anymore. I believe they fixed that in the 2014 season. My SLs are 2013, the toe ratchet was tricky to work with until I figured out a method that fixed the problem. My Factorys are 2014, and the ratchet is fine (this hasn't been tested in snow). The problem with the ratchets was that when they were cranked down they wouldn't release easily. My 2014s definitely release smoothly, even when cranked down.

With that said, I had the issues you were concerned with and I still went back to Union. And the T.Rice strap will probably be much more comfortable than the standard ankle strap. At least on the Factorys they are, IMO.

If you want to save some money you can check out these bindings: http://www.hotzone.tv/de/snowboard/b...-n-yellow.html They aren't pretty (mine are the Asadachi), but would work fine if you're into the Black and Yellow, Black and Yellow, Black and Yellow.

Cmac_spartan I am in the same place as scandi boarder and was wondering if the now drive fits thirty two boots well?
