jdang307 As long as she isn't trashing another binding then who cares?

Nosedramus comes up here and starts shit with Nivek every other week.

LadyFlinstone is trying to help. She's not spamming.

Arbor works with Flux quite a bit, dude asked what bindings to put on the Westmark, and so she offers up with Scotty Vine rides.

Scotty Vine is pretty fucking sick IMO. I don't watch a lot of videos and pros or whatever, but I love his style. Erik Leon too, with this frenetic style.

LadyFlinstone I gave my opinion. Then, gave some info that people probably didn't know about Flux. Sharing knowledge... and you can make your own opinion. Above working for Flux, I am a soul shredder and wouldn't put out suggestions I didn't stand behind. Just like anyone else on this forum. It's clear in my profile info that I work for Flux...and I'm not hiding it. Just didn't think I needed an introduction everytime I decided to post on this thing....
Hope to keep spreading the good word.

Eh... hard to single out Flux, as they're not the only ones doing it. Union posts as Nosedradamous or something like that and I think there are 1 or 2 more. I agree the mfrs should be more transparent, but whatever. The mfrs that are clear about it I think do a better job of supporting their brand as they come accross as interested and reponsive to consumers.

No harm in that in this situation. Just some good ol' targeted marketing.

EDIT:

Uhhh....nevermind. I just saw that he was, in fact, NOT looking for Flux clamps initially.

Ian Sams and Erik Leon both do this with their bindings.
The DS30 and DMCC light both have the same highback made of super tough nylon. It is going to feel softer than the SF45 because of the shape of it.
Ian Sams rides the DS30 because he likes a softer baseplate for jibbing. The baseplate on the DS30 is made out of a 30% fiberglass mix.
Erik Leon rides the DMCC light because he likes a little more response from his baseplate when he's flyin fast through the park. The DMCC light's baseplate is made from a carbon infused fiberglass... making it lighter, and more responsive than the 30% blend of the DS30.
Scotty Vine rides the SF45 because he likes response in his highback and baseplate. The SF45 uses a 45% blend of fiberglass in the baseplate, making it the stiffest and most responsive in the Flux line up. However, the response in this binding is a lot of fun in the park too.
Hopefully this helps you out to learn the cryptic code that is Flux Bindings...

What are your reasons for the DMCC lights and TT30's as a posed to the DS30's?

Just curious as I find it hard to differentiate between the Flux styles.

I considered the Contact because I thought it was suposed to be a good freestyle park binding. Is the Pro that much stiffer?

Thanks for all the info
The contact baseplate is stiffer because it's carbon injected and the highback is quite a bit stiffer straight back than the regular contact, which is REALLY soft. The shape of the highback though, allows you to tweak more since your boot can slide off a little better.

Contact pros are an awesome binding for what you're looking for. They're at home on any board and any part of the mountain IF you like a little more lateral flex, if you dont...get something else.

Also, it's cool to see what the pr0s run on their setup for suggestions, but remember, bindings are all preference. Some pros like a stiffer clamp and some don't.
