I'm looking for some very stiff bindings. As a ways of comparison, I tried the LF CT Watsons last year and found them far too flexible.

I also tried on the Ronix Cells, and although stiff, they were very uncomfortable.

Anyone ridden both the Watsons and the Sovens and can tell me how much more stiff the Sovens are?

Are this years Cells the same as last years?

Any other suggestions would be great!

Thanks

Hyperlite Merek's. Rusty designed them to be stiff like hockey skates.

The CWB AA's are very stiff, too.

I am surprised to hear you say the Cells were uncomfortable. They are the nicest bindings I have ever had. The 09s are even nice then the 07-08s.

I wish my snowboard boots were as comfortable.

You need to try on some broken in cells, then you'll fall in love.

D2/D3 and get the ankle harness ... I've tried most all of the "stiff" bindings mentioned (not the AA) and the D2 is stiffer and more comfortable.

I just got the cells and I also thought they were uncomfortable when I first put them on. Everywhere seemed really stiff... then I had them heat molded and they are now more comfy than my shoes. After a couple sessions they will be good to go. I would definitely give them a second look.

Stang, I prefer the feeling of the ride. Chad Sharpe also believes that stiff bindings prevent knee damage.

Maybe I'll give the Cells another look.

I liked the D2s when I tried them on but I heard that SS bindings do not release on a hard fall. (I have a friend who jacked his knee to heck when he didn't come out of his bindings on a rough fall.)

I'm about a 9.5 foot size.

Should I go 9 or 10 on the Cells?

I've come out of my D2's once.

stiff bindings are always going to trash your knees... if you fall and have to bend its either going to be - knees, ankles, or both... if you have stiff boots the ankle is taken out of the and so it both, so odds are your knees are going to get rocks.... coming out of your boots won't save you... especially if only one foot comes out, then you're in a world of hurt.

Go with the 9. My Cells (2007) seem to run larger. I wear an 11 size shoe and I should have gotten the 10's. The 11's seemed too large and I had to retire them way before their time.

The 08' SS stuff came with the internal ankle harness, I think they did away with them after 08 (09+) but I'm not positive, I would be willing to bet if you got newer boots SS would have some left over at the factory they would give/sell.... they lock your ankle down so tight its mind blowing... I never really used them just because it was toooo much
