F2 Carve RS binding for EC g4?

Post by get!em » Thursday 10 December 2015, 11:57

I can get a pair of F2 Carve RS bindings. The are advertised with a lot of flex sideways. And are advertised as bindings for beginners.
Do you recommend them for the Swoard Extremecarver gen4?

Or is it too much flex...

Hi

These are a little bit too soft to work correctly with the EC Gen 4.
I tried these bindings 2 years ago. Of course it's possible to use them, but the feeling is far for perfect. During the transition between 2 curves it was like I didn't have anymore the board under the feet !

These bindings fit much better on the Dual board. Their softness match the board flex.

True, but those are used and not original label led F2 Carve RS. :D

I will search for a pair of race titanium L. Suits also better to my silberpfeil.

Thanks for the advice for proflex. Always thought it was a fake or copycat. I researched it, and see that is in fact the same company, same factory.

Now will have to find an affordable F2/Proflex race binding for the ECgen 4.
