Not trying to hijack the thread, but I have some questions about this. When you say "jump up" to the SPI/Double Agent, why do you use that term? Aren't the Alphas supposed to be Ride's top-tier bindings?

You mention the guy on your hill uses Contrabands... what are the differences between those and the MVMNTs (other than the obvious one-strap/two-strap thing and the changeable wedgies)?

Last, you say if your boots are loose your carving gets crappy... how does one know when it is time to get new boots? I have some DC Triax from '04 that I use. Thing is, this is really the first season I've used them. When I got them I was intending to use them a lot that season but snapped my ankle playing football... and this is the first year I've really gotten going again. Does it matter that they're older boots? I know there is a lot of new tech in bindings, but it wouldn't seem like boots would have had a sudden leap over a few years ago. They seem to fit well, don't give hot spots, etc... so, like I asked, how do I know when it is time to get new boots vs. new bindings .. heck, vs. a new board?
