I would agree. I rode SPIs last winter and they are light, tight and responsive, although this year I'm switching to K2 ctxs which on the carpet are a little more lateral flex and are so easy to get in and out of with the rear entry. hard and stiff though (at least referring to boards and bindings :-) is not always better in my book. I went from a stiff board to a med flex board and it is so much more fun to ride all over the mountain (gnu carbon credit). actually i am an old fart too but will never be too old for snowboarding unless something physically totally gives out.. I switched from skiing about 5 years ago and find it to be way easier on my knees.
