I'm trying to get myself up with a hardboot set up. I was gifted a Pogo Shaman, and just bought some used UPZ10's off ebay (oops). I was curious if anybody had some bindings they think would work well for me. I took the 185 out with a softboot set up and was horribly humbled by a sloppy powder day. I understand that i will be humbled again by this learning process, but was curious if you all had any suggestions/equipment that you think would help me on my path.

So kind of a sad day, I've decided to finally pull the trigger on a custom Oxess, which essentially means I've got a handful of boards and not enough legs nor monies. So the plan was to wait until 2020 to buy the Oxess and to put a Vistflex plate on it. But @pokkis decided to ruin that plan by selling me his Vistflex plate. So I blame him for this. Jokes, he is a legend, thanks again. I'm home this week, so I figured I'd get the photos done. I'm selling both the new items for significantly less than I spent, but hey, that's life, and I think the Coiler is a nice price for whoever wants it.
I'll be donating $10 from each sale to ASB.
1. Coiler Nirvana VCam 178cm. Titanal construction. Matte black carbonium topsheet. 19cm waist. 12-14m VSR sidecut radius. 16mm taper. Made for a 180lbs rider. Ridden exactly 20 days. Topsheet 8/10 (some little lift line nicks), base 9/10 (because not new, although can't see any imperfections), edges 10/10 never been touched and not dinged. Been stored with storage wax on the base, upright in a dry place and very little surface rust that I can see. I bought it new from Bruce and it rides exactly as you would expect. Sells new for CAD930, asking $450. SOLD.
2. Brand New SG Full Carve 170. Took delivery of this earlier in the year. Never ridden. Never even had bindings mounted. I did, however, stick that Apex sticker on because I thought I was cool doing so. I can easily remove that. After I rode my friend's one for a couple of runs this year, I just had to have one. I would say it compares favourably to my Kessler 168 (and that's saying a lot). So, I bought one. And now, I sell one ?. Sells new for EUR689, asking $550. SOLD.
3. Brand New Apex X Plate 4x4. Apparently this is a stiffer than usual version. I can actually somewhat flex it with my hands, so I'm not 100% sure what the regular plate is like, but I'm guessing this is stiffer. It comes with 8 bumpers instead of the regular 4. Comes with everything I got with it. Instruction manual, 4mm hex key, 10mm and 12mm bolts and obviously all necessary mounting hardware. Bought this because I have an Apex Race V2 and Geckos and love them both. So, why not eh? Sells new for CAD1200, asking $650. SOLD.
Shipping is $50 for the boards and $30 for the plate. Add apx $0-$10 for shipping to Canada depending on location.
FULL DISCLOSURE: If there is interest for this stuff, I will pack them individually and ship them all to the US at once, once they are landed, I'll take payment for whoever buys them and they will be shipped individually to whoever wants them. Payment only to be sent once the boards are in the US and ready to be sent, not before. So if you are interested, let me know, and I can reserve you what you are interested in (no obligation to buy). Shipping to the US, takes 7 days and then it takes 1-7 days from there to you, depending on your location.
Now there's no "Bomber" whom we rightly had to respect, I think I can ask this question.... There are multiple variants of the standard F2 binding out there, but has anyone any reviews/ experience/ comparative information on them? I like to avoid riding stuff which is more than a decade old, so I ought to buy some more bindings and I'm wondering which will work best. The ones I know of are:
Standard F2 Titanium bindings, same as I've used for the last 20 years and which work flawlessly for me. They come in two sizes of which I use the smaller. You can get blue anodized ones thi season, it seems, as well as the standard black.
The CNC version of the above. These are pretty and maybe I should get some to put on my bookshelves, but they're not commonly used in races I think so perhaps they have "stiffness" problems as per some other machined bindings. They're likely heavier and more expensive than (1).
The Virus "Power Lock" stuff... they look similar in principle to the F2, but apparently are "machined from a solid block" of whatever so perhaps are stiffer? I'm not really looking for that, and I'm kind of suspicious of Virus as they make those extremely narrow boards which isn't my thing. These come with a baseplate - is that mandatory? How high does that put the boot over the board? I kind of like simple and low, hence F2 Ti Race not F2 Titanflex.
Kessler's F2 variant. These have white handles and no step-in variant, but otherwise look like stock F2 bindings. Is that what they are? These come in 3 sizes, suggesting they're not just a re-brand of the F2s.
Are there any more, perhaps South-East Asian variants I should look at?
I'm just interested in any actual users of these and similar bindings... what are the main characteristics and what do I need to know which isn't obvious?....
