If you liked the way the mountain twin handled with the exception of the instability in chop I'd go with the Big City. Same camrock profile but stiffer than the mountain twin. I've got a Big City...

Now that you decided on the bindings, how do you find the Big City? I really like mine with the exception that is wasn't as damp as I expected it to me. Jamie Lynn and T.Rice seem to be much more...

I think it is a Nidecker issue. They seemed to press certain sizes of YES snowboards really late as well.

For hard charging I prefer my Yes Big City to my T.Rice. For me camber under the feet just feels better when I really want to push. Out of your list I'd say go for the BSOD. You may want to look...

You'll be fine with the size 12 for the 164.5. Remember the waist width is the narrowest point on the board, not actually where your boots will be. You won't likely be riding a 0* binding angle so...

I've own a 2010 SL from NS and a 2011 T.Rice and 2011 Jamie Lynn. The T.Rice and SL are very different beasts so I won't go into that. The SL(161) and Jamie(160) are somewhat comparable, with the...

I've got Targas on my freeride board and 390 bosses on my all mountain and there is a pretty big difference in the stiffness and mobility that they allow. If you put Targas on the Kink,...

Don't be scurred. If you know how to operate a screwdriver you'll be fine. It'll might take 15 mins or so to set them up, but once you do they are magic.

Ask Leo, I think he has a 9.5 Burton boot in a l/xl and could tell you if a 8.5 will work. My guess is you want the s/m.

That'll work. Just because Rome's sizing chart says 9-14 for l/xl doesn't mean if your boot is in that range you can just strap in and go. It means that you can ADJUST the binding to fit those...

Adjust the heel cup. There is no reason that you should be at the end of the ladders with a 11.5 boot, even with the low-profile f20. I have plenty of ladder left with my 10.5 f24's in a l/xl Targa...
