Ahh the way it was worded I thought you ment you got a regular edition for that on sale. I saw that military one someone posted about and think the graphic is way better. Made me want to call my uncle up and beg him to buy one for me at that price! But sadly I knew my conscious would have the best of me and I'd never be able to look at that board or take it out of my house in shame lol.

Return the Yukon. You don't want it. Trust me.

I would go with the Rodeo's over the Formulas for stiffness actually. The metal baseplate is just going to be a little stiffer. At your weight the Rodeo will make a decent all mountain binding. That Cobra is honestly a little big for you too. I'd have suggested the 55 if you'd been in my shop.

henry06x Rodeos and capos have the same chassi and toe strap but the highback and ankle strap and softer on the rodeo. It's deffinetly more of a park binding and the capo is a better fit. Those are some rugged stuff mountain boards for a beginner. I think the cobra will be easier to learn on but it's definitely a bomber board.

Cobra also just was released for 2013 if I'm not mistaken.. How did you get one for $350 already!?

Nivek You're a beginner riding a Yukon? Do you have a size 14 and weigh 240lbs or something? Also the Cobra was overkill to unless you plan on mobbing steeps by next year.

As for the bindings, they will do alright on the Yukon and a little better on the Cobra. Capo's is where I would have steered you from Ride.

I recently purchased a Never Summer Cobra(158) and a Ride Yukon(159). I'm still in the beginner stages and would like an upgrade to my Burton Freestyles. A sales person suggested Ride Rodeos and I purchased them because they were on extreme sale. Was this a good buy or should I return them for something else?
