Default 08 Ride Spi vs 08 Nrc or 09 Nrc

Stats: 28, Male, 195 Lbs
Current Setup: 2010 SL-R, '08 Ride Spi (large), 15/-15, 23.5 in stance, 08/09 Solomon F24's (10.5)
Ability: Intermediate, 80/20 split between freeride and park (jumps only)

I've been having a lot of foot pain while riding recently and thought it could be attributed to my insoles in my boots. I went out and got some superfeet, but I'm still having the same issue. After reading on the forums about canted footbeds possibly alleviating foot pain I figured I'd try it out. Here are my questions:

How would the flex compare between an 08/09 ride spi and the 09/10 ride Nrc? I like the response I get from my spi's, so going to something that is more freestyle oriented (per the manufacturer) kind of worries me.

To get my foot centered on my board I currently have adjusted my spi's so that the gas pedal is all the way out, and the heel cup is in the furthest back setting. I can get the 08/09 Nrc on sale but only in an XL, but I'm worried about the fit width wise.

Lastly, if the Nrc is softer than I'd prefer, could I swap my 08 spi highback onto either the 08/09 or 09/10 Nrc?

Sorry about the length but thanks for the help

put the SPi highback on the NRc and you basically have a CAD

That's basically what I gleaned from the Ride website. I picked up a pair of NRc's on my lunch break. I'll try them out stock first, then if they aren't responsive enough I'll swap out the highback with my SPi's and see what happens.

if you are looking at 09/10 nrcs, why don't you consider 09/10 Spi's with the precanted footbeds?

I like the idea of being able to dial in the amount of canting to exactly what I want.

Or just get the CAD to begin with. Still, the NRc should work just fine. I didn't find it to be too soft at all.

NRc is cheaper and he already has an SPi for parts

to add from the previous replies, the NRC and CAD (only difference is in the highback) is that they have the customflex ankle strap while the SPI has a balance ankle strap, I think they have a video on Ride site about it.
