Default K2 Hurrithanes yay or nay?

Greetings friends,

I have a 157 parkstar wide I just ordered and am looking at getting some newer, more forgiving bindings. I'm really interested in the K2 Hurrithanes, but I am wondering if it is going to be TOO forgiving, especially since I am probably on the larger side. (Size 11 Motos, 6'3'' ~210 lbs)

My last setup was a 163w Burton Deuce with 2009 Burton Customs and it seemed extremely stiff. I ride about 60/40 mountain/park.

Questions are

1. Can anyone (hopefully someone who has demo'd the hurrithanes) give me an idea if this will be too much flex for me?

2. A little unrelated, considering going risers but my buddy told me to not even think about risers till I ride whatever bindings im going to get a few times. What is the general concensus on risers? I hardly ever see anyone ride them.. (or maybe I just don't notice)

3. I'm going to eventually order my Hurrithanes or whatever bindings online, but should I check out a local shop to get a feel for them?

Once again thanks to whoever takes the time out to help me!
