The Manual is the wide version of the Artifact...it's a jib board more than anything. I'd look at the Slash if I were you... the SPi's are definitely a stiff, very quick responding free-riding binding, not very good for freestyle though as the flexibility isn't there in the high back...if you were only riding the mountain and doing some jumps then the SPi's are great, if you're looking to seriously focus on freestyle I'd avoid them and look at their mvmnt series of bindings
