"boss cant beds aren't necessary" 12/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: 2011 Rome 390 Boss Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  straps are user friendly, works well with reversed cambered boards, good dampening
  • Cons:  takes a while to set up, somewhat difficult to screw down onto board,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I rode these bindings for 3 days with a 155 Sierra Stunt. I put it on the widest stance with 15 degrees outwards on both feet (duck stance). I see no benefit with the cant beds; in fact, it threw off my balance even more. I think the cant beds might have been better suited with other stances (non-duck) because the cant beds actually tilted me more forward. I went back to the 0 degree beds after the first day and the bindings were awesome. I definately felt less impact/vibrations when compared to other bindings (burton mission, flows, union force). There is some set up time involved, but it is worth it. There is a lot of padding involved, so it might be difficult to get the screws to meet the board, but eventually it will get there if you put all your weight over the screw.
"Sierrascope FK 156" 7/8/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Capita Sierrascope FK
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Butters,Halfpipe,High Speeds,Jumps,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  Flexible, Responsive, Fast
  • Cons:  limited sizes,

Experience:   The Sierrascope is a well-built (sturdy) playful board--great for jumps, buttering, and going on the halfpipe. For some reason, this board made riding switch seem really easy. I really liked the tip/tail flex on the board with the stiffer middle. The board did not have any issues on the icier parts of the mountain, but it would have been nice if the board had some magnetraction-like feature.
"Dakine Mountain Stomp Pad" 3/8/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2006 Dakine Mountain Snowboard Stomp
  • Pros:  Good Grip,
  • Cons:  2/3 fell off,

Experience:   2 out of 3 of these fell off already (after about half a season). I clean the surface very well before application and put a lot of heavy books to let it cure for about a day. Dakine usually makes good stomp pads, but for some reason these fell off. Decent stomp pads while they stayed on.
"Flow Team (L)" 7/8/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Flow Team
  • Pros:  Quick to get into, Easy to set up, Lighter than other Flow bindings
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I purchased these bindings from Sierra on a steep discount so I can't comment on the value vs. cost of these bindings. However, I think that the Flow Team bindings are the best of the Flow Bindings that I've used for several reasons (This is taking into account bindings from 2009 and earlier--no 2010s.): (1) Lighter than other flows--about the same weight as a Medium Union Force, (2) Ratcheting system for both the front and back (If you are looking to buy Flows, buy one of the higher end models with ratchets on the front. It is definitely worth it.), and (3) The highback stays down (in a semi-locked position) for easier entry as opposed to other flows whose highback tends to float up as you put your feet in the bindings. I've used these bindings for the majority of a season and have not had any issues with them so far. Customizable, comfortable, convenient.
