Just bought a F2 Silberpfeil.

I like to carve but kinda new with it.

What bindings you advice?

F2 Intec Titanflex - Intec Titanium or maybe F2 CNC race Alpine?

I've Deeluxe boots

Couple of questions will help make your needs clearer.

How well established is your riding stance i.e. angles, distance, toe/heel lift and canting? Some bindings are more adjustable if you have not got yourself sorted there.

Do you understand the trade offs between Intec heel bindings and standard bail bindings?

You can spend a lot or a little. I have a pair of F2 Intec Race bindings I bought second hand for not much that have lasted very well. If you're just getting started, spending less until you can answer your question above all by yourself is not a bad idea.

Welcome to Bomber. Look around, learn how to use the Search function, you've already found the Review section, there's plenty more in the general Carving Central forum threads on bindings.

I know my stance.

63/57

50cm distance

I only know that the Intec bindings are a kind of step in bindings but are they less stiffer compared to the standard bindings? Do i need stiff bindings for carving?

Thanks!!!

As you're new to carving, the F2 CNC are probably overkill.

Generally speaking, a step-in binding with similar design to a conventional binding will be stiffer.  However the Titanflex has a cushioned base that adds some flex, so overall the design is of medium stiffness.  For me, the convenience of step-in is a major draw.  I would never go back to conventional bindings.  I own 2 pairs of the Titanflex plus an older version of the RS, and they have worked well for me.

YMMV. I have never used step-in bindings and never missed them. With your angles, you will probably be alright with Intecs. With low angles, the much higher lateral stiffness (compared to bail bindings) can become problematic, Titanflex or no. Note that for Intecs you will also need Intec heels. Those add some height, so you may want to use a bit more toe lift in front.

      For sale is a pair of F2 Carve RS bindings, includes all parts and a second lift kit.   These will fit mondo sizes 22.5 - 31.5.  They're currently set up as small, but can be changed to large in less than 5 minutes; I'll re-size them before shipping if the buyer requests. 
      They only have about 5 days on them, ridden by my spouse who's a lightweight at #115, so these are pretty much in new condition.
      $150 plus shipping USPS Priority from Portland, OR, CONUS and PayPal only.  I'll also throw in a Pozidrive #3 bit if the buyer doesn't already have one.

      Swoard Extremecarver 3rd generation 168cm Medium flex. $300USD + shipping or best offer
      Excellent condition, as I have only used it on rare occasions on perfect groomers early in the morning. It's been sitting in my locker for a few years, so it's time for me to get rid of it.

      F2 race titanium bindings size medium. These came on a board I purchased. I opted for TD2s instead. They appear to be in good condition other than a few screws which are stripped. You can buy the replacements online. Asking $120 shipped USPS flat rate in the lower 48. Local pickup available in Portland, ME. I can also meet at Sunday River or sugarloaf on weekends.

      As part of my return back into alpine riding, I'm very much in a mode of trying a bunch of new things. Sadly these bindings aren't right for me. Although I knew the lift was adjustable, I didn't realize they would be quite this flat. Frank said that 95% of their customers ride them in this configuration, which is a flat front (one block under both the toe and heel), and the rear has about a 1-degree lift as best as I was able to measure (one block under the toe, two blocks under the heel). Frank offered to send more blocks and longer screws if I felt I needed them. However I think it would take a fair bit to get to 3 degrees, and I'm now toying around with the idea of a 6-degree lift at least on the front (so considering some TD3s now). 
      I just have one day on this set. Unfortunately I experimented with too many variables at once, and my stance (and riding) was jacked. I'm guessing that's why the rubber pads on the toe piece incurred some damage because I was trying to steer madly with my feet. Besides that, the bindings and dampening pads are in the same condition as they were shipped. I feel badly about the rubber pads, and just want to recoup some of my money at this point.
      Purchased for $392. Selling for $225 including shipping in the US.
