linvillegorge Yep, try to match the flex. The Heritage isn't THAT stiff though. I'm not that familiar with Missions, but if they're a mid-flex binding they should be just fine.

I've rode my cambered '09 Heritage with Flux Titans and it's quite manageable and the old cambered sticks were a lot stiffer than the newer RC versions.

eek5 Personally I would match my bindings with my board. I had Flow Flite II's, which are the softest bindings I've owned, on my Palmer Carbon Circle and I didn't like it at all. I ended up upgrading to NXT-ATSEs and the responsiveness is so much better that I couldn't imagine riding with softer bindings than that on a stiff board anymore.

I don't like my setups that way... at least a medium stiffness bindings on a stiff board.

Bayoh I have Missions from '09 and to be completely honest... I hate them. But they're a hodgepodge of different parts from past year Cartels. This year's may be better though I haven't looked at them at all.

Another binding I was debating about getting over the Targas were Flux SF45's which is supposed to be very comparable. K2 Evers were also on my list, but I believe they're a bit pricier.

Softer Bindings on Stiff Board

I went to buy some Targas to match up with my NS Heritage but couldn't find them locally. The sales rep at the shop recommended Burton Missions as a great all mountain binding (basically last year's Cartels) and said the softer flex would work well with the Heritage and would't make me have to be on my game 100% of the time (as a stiffer binding might). That sounds reasonable but I am not sure if I am completely sold. Any thoughts?
