That's a really good idea. I'd do it if I loved my Light Rails as much as I love my Cartels. Maybe when I get Sparks or something else I love more. I don't know if regular Voile pucks would work on a solid board though, since splits have such wide inserts. There are a couple of companies that have slider plates that will, though:

I have never personally ridden the Fame or Escapades... so I can't comment on the responsiveness of them... but, I do ride the men's bindings more than I ride the women's. I have a size 9 boot and the men's mediums work just fine for me. I suggest women's bindings to any girl with a smaller footprint. The baseplate is more narrow and it will just fit your boot better. If you have a smaller foot, your calf will probably sit lower too and having a lower sitting highback will feel more comfortable. It is always best to fit the boot into the binding in a shop if possible to ensure the best fit... since all boots are different.
If you are looking for response.... I really really reallllllly enjoy the SF's. I always assumed I liked a soft binding until I rode these. It blew my mind. They are so quick. I felt like I was snowboarding with rocketships on Jupiter. Just imagine that. So with it.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
Always down to help!

wrathfuldeity neni, on another thread, iirc shred or killz noted the idea which specifically would fit you. Get spark bindings (certainly stiff) for your splitty needs and an extra set of pucks to throw on your non-split...thus saved from buying 2 sets of bindings. Otherwise, daughter likes and uses Rome Madison's.

Was looking for yours, the Nidecker Carbon ones and over here its said that the '13 ones don't have highback rotation http://www.snowboardingforum.com/bin...binders-2.html Contacted Nidecker and the '14 ones will also not have a rotatable highback but they assured that this won't be a problem even with my steep angles. I'll get to demo a pair in M in September (they come in nice black-blue) Good reason to make a trip to a glacier

I may be wrong but go here Nidecker Snowboards - Fancy Black & zoom in to the high back. Does it not look like there are 3 adjustments, one to the left & right of the bolt? It does to me, but if you talked to them?

If you also get reviwes on the two above, I'd be very interested

I meant you queued yourself up to do the reviews.


EDIT: Now this is the moment you guys only spectating so far can jump in anyone here with steep angles and experience with bindings with non-rotatable highbacks? Comments on the two models?
You probably won't find anyone on here that rides such steep angles?
If you check out bomberonline.com you'll have much better luck.

I didn't notice yesterday that the bindings name is actually "fancy black"

They do have high back rotation, you can see it in the pics.

The ones I got have it & they are probably 10 years old, pretty sure they all have it?

The other ones I'll look at are the Ride El Hefe. I'm very happy with the adjustability, quality of ratches n straps and canted footbed of my Ride Fames, and I assume the Ride El Hefe will have the same if not better and the '14 ones will come in blackish metallic colors.

Haven't damaged neither lashes nor BOA on Burton and K2 boots so far (and I thighten them hard for every run), didn't even get a thought of this could happen. Thanks for the hint . Duct tape is in the backpack anyway, could fix a loose boot rough-and-ready - I hope.

With the BOA you don't even have to stop hiking, you can adjust the tightness of the inner and outer boot seperately while taking steps.

No, I have to admit. This GM would be stiffer/more responsive than Fame or Escapade? Any men's you would recommend?

I guess women are supposed to have skinnier calves than I do. My boots are taller than the highback on either binding, so the binding doesn't have anything to do with my calf height.
Good to know!
