extra0 do not ride any of that old shit any more. On top of what others have mentioned, those straps are super weak....can't imagine riding with that dental floss strapped across my boots.

As low as you may be on disposable income, get a new setup. Even cheaper, lower end new stuff is going to be a giant upgrade in every aspect.

And, for god sakes, dial in some better binding angles...even in the 90s, no one worth a shit rode +3/+3 deg angles (or is yours 0/0?)

lisevolution The only reason you think that Fat Bob is soft and flexible is probably because it has like a 1000 days on it and has no camber left at all. I had an almost exactly the same set up in maybe 1995 except I think my baseless bindings were Drake IIRC.

To whoever it was that asked about having to drill your own holes to mount your bindings, that wasn't just for baseless bindings, it was for all bindings. That was a bit earlier though by the mid 90's most boards had some sort of insert in them.

I think you can find a old board a few years old that will feel like a noodle, probably the older and cheaper is what you are looking for, but you also said you wanted to carve, the two don't really go hand in hand. I was in a shop , wave rave at mammoth , which had a demo of how new burton binding and their channel system lets the board flex more than other bindings. It lacks the ridgid baseplate ,similar to baseless bindings mentioned earlier. So I am not sure if it the board or the bindings which contribute to the ride that you desire, but if you are in SoCal this might be for you if you dont want to invest in new stuff . I also found that my wife's arbor push is really flexible.

Basti I had those exact bindings on a K2 Daniel Franck 142 back in the mid 90s. Best times!

If you feel like selling it, there's a considerable number of collectors out there who might give some good $ for that combo. That way you can buy a more modern set for yourself. Baseless bindings just kill your knees over time and the lowback doesn't give any support either.

BurtonAvenger You can't find a board that flexible? Pretty sure any basic model jibstick from any brand will ride that beat.

Would those bindings work with this board?

10sullivanb you're gonna have to find a board with sumo stance (arbor) or something with a wide enough stance option to accommodate those bindings. also a pre-est binding setup

bseracka do yourself a favor and throw away the bindings too.

SimonB You will most likely not find another board that have enough inserts to accomodate these bindings, unless you buy something in the same years...

Although not a good idea, you could probably fit them on a Burton channel board...
