To give a bit more detail, I've got the Ride Society, and am debating between the Contrabands and the 390s. Two people I know have the society with contraband, but many people have told me to just get the 390s, since they are a beast binding. I know that they are extremely comfortable. I've been riding this bad pair of Ride EX's for about two years. Would the contraband be anything close to the feel of that binding? Since last season, I've had my eye on the 390s. The contrabands also have the best color to suit my board. Which bindings should I go for
Well id still go with the 390's...... and this is why i don't know if you liked your EX's or not but yes they would have have a little smiler feel but the major difference is the special toe cup on the contrabands make a a lot of pressure points... but on the bright side for the contabands they are a vary light binding and a vary convenient but they have soo many set backs like i said in my first answer..... and as far as the look goes if you have last years society any of the 390's would look great on it because it is such a plain board.... and if you have this years the white and black ones would look sick on the black of that board..... hoped that helped
First off, thank you for taking your time to answer both. Today, I left to go to the shop, and I still couldn't decide, so I chose to buy both, then return one. I currently have both, and the 390s are going to have to be my choice. If I want the contraband's to fit properly, I'm going to have to cut part of the adjustment strap, which I don't plan to do since I may be returning it. The 390s have the ultra soft ankle strap, smoother than butter ratchets, that strap to get the ankle strap out of the way and everything. I am being too quick to judge the contraband's, but to be honest, I'm really nervous about them.
I think you have judged contrabands to early. I have used contra's for two seasons now and can't get enough of them. If you really can't get them to fit right, you either have the wrong size or you are setting them up wrong. I don't think I will be going back to normal two strappers any time soon.
