I thought the SL/Evo/Heritage was more park-oriented as on the site it is more on that side of the scale. After reading the posts, I have been thinking about getting the SL, and then trying on some stiffer boots at a shop and asking them which bindings will fit my budget and board+boots. Hopefully the colors match the board!
I rode the softest board they make at Breck going fairly fast. Super fast? No. Fastest guy on the slopes? No. Beat 5 other guys in a race? Yes. Fast as this old 35 y/o guy wants to go? Almost.

If you're going with NS, Proto/SL/Cobra and MAYBE heritage is what I'd look at. If you're a smaller guy like me, the Heritage is almost out of reach at 155cm but go read Snowolf's review. you never know. you might end up on a big mountain and your deck will be able to handle it.
