Extremo Union SL...That would be my top choice. You could wait till next year for the Union Charger. I'm riding Flux 45s on my park board and I hate them more and more everyday.

Shiverless I just got Ride El Hefe (for cheap price); I will go ahead and try the binding this weekend, and see how it response. I mainly bought this for carving, and the canted footbed tech. I really wanted to buy Diode (but too expensive!!), so hopefully I did not make a bad decision.

Forgot to add that I also am coming from 2011 Union Forces that were mounted on a 2011 Skate Banana. Capos are on a ProtoCT.

honeycomb Flow NXT's are good if you like to put it in from behind. My set it a few years old, I replaced all the ladders and new bolts for the toe straps, original high back and rear strap bolts are still solid. Stiff but very forgiving if you have a softer boot. I got an even older pair for my sis, they're real stiff and feel great carving, they're the old style NXT's with aluminum base and highback. I think boot stiffness has more effect than the binding.

gauntlet09 I put K2 Auto Evers on my Slayblade (which is quite stiff) and I've been nothing but happy so far.

SJ10 Flux SF45 or Diode would be my top two. Have tried Ride spi, Flux sf45, cartel est, diode est, co2 reflex over the last season and a half. Currently on the diode est w/ custom x. I'm a big fan of the reflex bindings but the sf45 is the best non-burton freeride binding I've tried.

huckfin cartels will go nicely with your boots.

limeoasis Thanks for the responses! I was wondering if anyone had experience with both the union forces and the ride capos, are capos stiffer than forces??? some ppl say they are , some say they aren't, very confusing! id love to get a pair of EL Hefe but theyre all sold out everywhere. Any other suggestions for something very responsive and stiff for a stiff board? im also looking at the burton malavita or diodes, but most ppl seem to say diodes are over kill for

Memphis Hawk Burton Diode? I guess it depends if you care how much you spend on a set of bindings.
