||So forces over contacts? I know i mentioned different boards. i have a burton custom with normal camber. I really like it but its kinda stiff and hard for me to press. I like the look of the Horrorscope and the sierra RC. Would those be pretty similar? which is better for jumps and jibs? Im not 100% sure what FK but im guessing its a Rocker with flat between the feet? how does that affect riding? I really appreciate the help.

||Im sorry about all my questions. I really haven't been snowboarding long. My first year I got my 'black patch' at Pine Knob. I started on very small park features. My second year i got a season pass and improved to medium features (mostly jumps) and got more tricks, all on the same set up. The reason I ask so many questions is because I didn't go once this year and feel like ive missed a lot. Also Ive only had one set up, so i only know a little. But thanks for every ones continued help.

||So ive been really considering a Sierra reverse crew and Rome S90 bindings. I just looked at my local shop though and noticed i could get other boards for the same/lower price. like the Capita stairmaster and Horrorscope FK, also the Capita NAS. I also noticed Union Force and Contact. HOw do all these compare. I know they are probably a lot different but what would you suggest? Im intermediate and enjoy all around but mostly jumps/jibs. i want to get better at jibs but i like jumps a lot. Thanks for all your help and patience over the past couple days with my repetitive questions

||I'm not sure about the camber/ hybrid but my first board was a burton custom. I am about the same stats as you beside age. I progressed really fast on my custom. I went from bunny hill to small park in a short season. I know you said you dont do park, but I really liked my custom. Too bad i grew out of it because i bought a smaller size to save some money. I just wanted to say I really liked my burton custom (it was a normal camber) and feel I could still improve a lot on it, if I didn't grow out of.

||You like mission better than cartels? I always though cartels were a step up. What other bindings would you guys recommend. Probably med flex, good for all around but mostly boxes/rails and jumps? What about like union contacts/forces?

||I live like 15 minutes away from PineKnob. This may of already been covered but what do you like better, Holly or PK? Ive never been to Holly but was wondering if its worth going up next season.

||If they are a step down. I would consider buying something else.

||What did you win? Boots or Bindings?

||^ Does wearing knee pads help at all? i cant see it helping much for how much mobility it seems to take away. Maybe its just me. Does it work well?
|3/8/2012 7:41:29 AM
||I have a question about the Rome S90 binding. I know ive asked a lot of questions recently so thank you for your patience. This may of already been answered but the S90 are good for park/ all round riding right? I would be switching from Burton Missions to these. Would they be similar or would it be a step up/ step down? Thanks again for the help.

||I dont think going to a local shop will work, but thanks. I dont want to be the guy to waste the employees time just to buy them of here. I think ill just go with the L/XL. Is that what you would go with?
|3/6/2012 4:06:45 PM
||Im really considering buying the Sierra Reverse Crew and the Rome S90 bundle. But i need to know if i should go with S/M or L/Xl. im 9.5 so im at the top of the S/M. Is it better to be at the top of the range or low/middle. The board would be 151 by the way. Thanks for your continued help!

||Like I said, they fit perfect. they have some wear but no holes or defects. I have to buy a new board and bindings and then probably a season pass, so i was hoping my boots would last. i was just wondering how often others change and if there is any problem with older boots ie. support and such.
|3/6/2012 9:09:04 AM
||$3.75 to $4.05 in Metro Detroit. Regular that is...

||Hi, Ive had a pair of Burton Moto from 3 years i think. I learned in them and probably got 10 days use of them. The next year i had a season pass and went a lot. This past year they sat in my closet because I didnt make it out. My question is, do i need new boots? they still fit perfect but they do have some wear. How often do you get new boots? Thanks for all the help and sorry for all my questions recently.
