Didn't know the district are that soft. Really apprec your input readimag sounds like we ride a little similar. These are going on my Smokin BigWig 157 with Burton Grail boots. Big bear/MHkickers, boxes, rails , etc....Mammoth or Big /pow bombing I got the NS F-1 Premier 161 with C-60 Burton binding.

Super versatile binding you can ride it anywhere on the mountain. Comfy straps. Good board feel due to the minimized baseplate, better flex & response.
Can you swap out the toe and ankle straps? The other thing that's concerning is read quite a bit that the overall quality needs improvement.
