Awesome, thanks for the recommendations guys! I checked out the SL-R, and it looks pretty good, but like mwl001 said, I don't know if I can justify dropping the extra cash to myself. Now I just have to choose between the Custom and the Element, which I'll prolly stress over for a bit, lol. I think I'm leaning towards the Element, cause it's cheaper, and I can feel better about trading up in a couple years if I want.
Any suggestions on what bindings go well with the element? I haven't really checked any out at all yet. Thanks!
