I agree with you but sadly my local has burton and Rome and that's it. If I could find a local with k2, ride or flux I'd be all over it. The only one that comes close is REI and I might as well look online than go there...

To each their own buddy. The rep I go to always offers excellent service and gear suggestions and on top of that he hooks me up with an extra discount off the retail price. I'll only shop from companies that will fully guarantee and stand behind the products they sell even when the product supplier themselves will not. Will the local shop you buy from allow you to return a product that you are not 100% satisfied with even after its been used? Will your local shop do a price match guarantee? Maybe you got wads of clash to blow but I dont wanna be sitting on gear that I wont use

What boots do you wear with the DMCC? I also heard with reduced footprint boots the fit with the flux can seem a little loose at the sides...they look awesome though. I'd buy them from dogfunk and if they didn't work out they'll take them back anytime.
I am riding the DMCC Light's Size medium with Ride RFL Spd's Size 9.

j1nftw1n Some very nice suggestions so far thanks everyone, I will be doing some due diligence to dial it in on the perfect binding for my setup.

Mr Tidbit your def right bindings def are a personal preference, although my choice of board rite now is the ride highlife there currently isnt a binding in the ride line that would suit my preference. I'm an intermediate free rider thats looking for comfort and control in a sleek lite weight package (no frills or fancy color ways if preferable) to replace my mid flex burton cartel which is more of a freestyle/all mountain binding.

I was at REI hoping to check out the Burtion Diode but they were solds out ggop. They did have the burton malavita in stock, burton rates it a 6/10 on stiffness but i think its def stiffer than (id say 7/10) other bindings in the same bracket such as the mission and cartels. The malavita it feels like a very solid binding. The base plate is covered with a cushy eva pad and has bubble pockets in them, kinda reminds me of them ol skool nike and reeboks from back in the early 80's. I would imagine this would be a really comfortable ride and will cut down on a lot of chatter. The highback are not as high as the cartels but was noticeably stiffer. I also checked out the Union Contact Pro (designed by gigi ruff), was not as impressed with the build quality and although rated 7/10 by Union they were not as stiff as imagined.

The quest continues
