Damn i may have to buy a Graft off of there. Thats a $120 markdown. I'll have to see what the local shop is doing for mark downs first though.

That's what I'm currently using right now. I love that combo. I use it for freeride, all mountain, kickers etc. I haven't taken it to a pipe as I have another board/binding combo for that. However I wouldn't be opposed to hit the parks at all with this combo at the end of a run. If I knew I would spend most of my time in the parks during any given day, then I would pull out my park specific board. Needless to say, the Anthem can do it all if need be.

On a side note, I'll have me a brand new pair of Ride SPI's tomorrow I looked at the Romes but without trying and having ridden SPI's for the past 3 years, I can't steer away.
I've been on a pair of Ride EX's for the past 2 1/2 seasons or so, which I think is one of the best binding values on the market for an intermediate rider, but I'm no longer intermediate. You think the SPi's would really be that much of a step up? My EX's are pretty forgiving, but I think I'm ready to graduate to a stiffer binding for a bit better response on the steeps.

BUT if someone can order for me, or I order and ship to them, then they bring to the meet, i will be a happy boy
nah not really man, if you get the stuff shipped USPS there are no brokerage fees and very little customs.. and if you get the store/ sender to mail it as a gift or repair/warranty item the customs is even less... and if you dont care about insurance say they are only worth $1.50 or some small amount and again it will be even less.
generally it should just be $20-25 for int'l ground shipping and your good to go... but that is only with USPS, fedex and ups will kill you in fees.

i just got spy orbits from steepandcheap for $50, and it was $15 for shipping and no border/ customs fees.. and i have Targas coming in the mail, and they are being sent USPS and as a warranty item, so i shouldnt have to pay more than $10 in customs.

Well that is a question I can't really answer from experience as the only Rides I've had have been the SPIs. I know that the ratchets look/feel beefier than the EX, RX and the Deltas I looked at(I was looking at them in the shop today) and I believe they have quite a bit stiffer of a chassis. SPI's are not meant to be really comfy flexible park bindings but I like them because my first set lasted forever and even though I finally broke them yesterday, I will definitely be repairing them. I don't think I'll ride another binding as long as they are made. They are really responsive, and the footbeds are nice and plush for those accidental flat landings. They are quite adjustable too. Im looking forward to riding my brand new ones this weekend as they have changed a little from my old ones. The highback is a little different, the ratchets look even stronger, and the toe straps look to be of a little higher quality as well. A lot of people seem to dislike SPIs and I think for a lot of people they are too stiff, but I like having mad response at my feet.

I bought those same Spy Orbits, and I know what you mean, but trust me; I've bought a LOT of stuff from the states, andits always more expensive to have it shipped accross the boarder. Shiet, if you can order those 390's from that site and get 'em to your door for $150, I'll buy them off you!

go to that site... total to Canada is $206. And they don't qualify for free shipping (even in the states) so I'm only buying them if I can unload my old bindings for $50.
