Good advice, but I think that last line needs a little explanation. How does weight not matter?
Weight doesn't matter because the difference in weight savings from a heavy board to a light one, or heavy bindings to light ones, is like the difference of a glass of water and breakfast size.
Weight should only be a consideration for a splitty imo, otherwise you are fooling yourself.
A week in the gym will make heavy gear feel lighter than buying a new super light setup.
