Switching from my Ronix Ones this year and looking for some input from anyone that has ridden either of the Vantage, Soven or Watson Bindings. I'm looking for something with a lot of flex to poke grabs and something that I can leave the uppers loose because I like to eject on hard falls. Any constructive input would be appreciated!

Vantages are the softest of those three. I just rode a pair of last years watsons for the first time a few days ago. They are pretty stiff. My Sovens from few years prior to that are somehwere between the Vantage and Watson. If your looking for a soft LF binding you may also want to look at the Bonifay's

I have the '11 Soven, '11 Watson and now '12 Bonifays. I would def say the vantages will give you more flex. Watsons have more flex than the other 2 I listed. Hell my new Bonifays are downright uncomfortable...I hope they break in!

Shoot I'm an idiot. I meant the Shane's instead of the Sovens. I've been starring at the LF website for so long trying to decide which ones I want that they all blend together.

Logan- Yes I live in Lodi. I camped at Hogan last year once but I don't normally take my boat up there. I usually ride on the Delta or the River in Walnut Grove on my boat or Disco or Folsom on friends boats.

Jarrod- Yea I got put on the Lft Coast LF Team so the ones have to go ;( I'm gonna miss them though...

Scott and LR3w8kbdrdr Thanks for the input guys!
