  1. New Binding purchase assistance

    Hello everyone...hope all are well. Wanted to throw a few questions out there to get my current setup, or lack thereof, moving forward. After trying out some Sidewinders, a came to realize I really like toe lift and heel lift without much cant fore or aft. After reading many of the threads on here about such topics, and after re-reading Beckman's article on Binding Setup, (fantastic by the way!) I came to realize I've been woefully short of a good setup for many years. All my years of riding plates/hb's, I've always used the Burton 7* unicant wedge under rear, flat up front, and did not realize how painful/unbalanced I was until I brought the front toe up a few degrees. My current interest is either a set of Sidewinders or F2's, where I can play with toe and heel lift as needed, making sure I don't get into something too stiff...tried Fin's TD1 years ago, both stepin and standard, and it was way to much for my riding. I had purchased a set of Sidewinders a few years back, liked the softness and comfort of them, but did not get much time on the snow during that time, and foolishly sold them on here. Tried like hell to buy a new pair of boots and another pair of SW's last year, but it was just too damn difficult/time consuming to get anyone at Bomber to take my money. So, my current thoughts moving forward is either a set of F2's of some sort, or another set of SW's. I do like simplicity, which my old/current set of Burton/Ibex offer. Here are my questions about this, and I appreciate the time and information in advance. I've never had/seen/setup F2's. I'm interested in their supposed simplistic design (similar to my Burton/Ibex), and very interested in what I hear is pretty easy to do regarding toe and heel lifting, if that is truly the case. I'm not at all interested in fabricating to make things work, as I just don't have the tools, etc., so I'm hoping all is easy to do out the box. 1. F2 Ti Race: Compared to my Burtons, are these much stiffer, or more rigid? How about compared to SW's.? 2. F2 Ti Race: What comes in the box regarding shims? How readily can I add a few degrees of toe lift and maybe 3-4 degrees under heel...with, or without cant? 3. F2 Intec Titanflex: I'm interested in these from a convenience and potentially a softer setup, but concerned about being to twitchy/stiff...as I found out from my TD1 Stepins many years ago. Given the build on these, I see they may be, in theory, a little softness built into these compared to others, but for those that have played around with these, are they close to the SW's in give/play, or is there a noticeable difference in being a more stiff/unforgiving interface? 4. F2 Intec Titanflex: The descriptions of these would seem to indicate more customizations to lift/cant, etc. than the F2 Ti Race...Would this be true? 5: F2: Binding setup regarding lift/cant, etc.: Can anyone point me to a video, or series of pictures, that would illustrate what these offer and how to go about setting these up? This would be huge to get a visual on my end. Haven't had much luck in my searches finding such. 6: TD3 SW's: If I decide, based on opinions/information expressed here regarding the F2's, to go this route again, there is definitely a large price difference...and I'd be foolish not to bring this into consideration. I'm assuming I'll be able to purchase these at some point in time. I have read a little about the possibility of Fin/Michelle taking back over their creation, and I hope this is true. It's unfortunate what seemed to have happened, but would explain my troubles in trying to place orders last year. FYI on me...I'm not as aggressive as I used to be, and ride small mountains here in VA and WV. My current board is an old Volkl Spline 164 and usually rid mellow angles, 45-50 forward, 35-40 aft, and this is mainly due to riding a 91 Burton M6 with fixed 45 - 35 Vari-plates and Nordica SBH for ever. I'm about 230lbs. I know...bunch of questions, but I just can't get my hands on any of this stuff where I am, and am trying to limit any surprises up front. All the best... Randy
