Nah mate, 14's and 15 pretty much the same thing!!!!! Just paint!!!!!

Carbon responsiveness with rubbers you can change out to increase/decrease lateral roll, soft/hard sections in the footbed to "Auto Cant" somewhat, cushy straps, sweet ratchets, and a heap of adjustability!!!!!

There's also the SF which is virtually the same binder, just in a 45% nylon blend instead of carbon composite!!!!! (Scotty Vine's choice of wheel) Only difference is a fraction heavier in weight, but lighter on the wallet!!!!!

Right on, I was shopping these pretty hard last night right before I posted this, but I thought I better get some sleep.
the '14s were about $100 cheaper.

Hmmm... define "ok"...
Been riding my Flag an entire season with women's Ride Fame bindings and it was "ok" (awsome ). If you don't want to get other bindings, pair it with whatever you have, it'll be "ok". If you want to buy new ones anyway, I'd go with stiff ones tho. But it's not a necessity to enjoy the board, I dare to claim.

Sweet looking board btw! Would be very interesting to see how it rides compared to the Flag, how the evolution of the board went.

Well, I'll be buying bindings regardless, because meh to changing them out. I really like my Company's, and I know I'm strong enough to twist that board up, I'm just kinda concerned that even a mid flex binder will give too much. Everything I've read about The Experience is that it's a stiff board... My first was a cambered K2 Union (park board) and then the NS SL, neither of which is terribly stiff. So I just don't know how much I'd loose in energy transfer.
