Help me choose the right Now

I've decided to grab a set of Nows to replace my Flow Fuse GTS. I'm just not liking them.

Being 46 and only 4 years into the sport I'm still very much intermediate. My super aggressive days are behind me. So we're talking for the most part East Coast/VT resort riding. Though I do wander into the park with my son and do boxes, never rails, and small to medium jumps with no spinning However with him progressing at a faster rate than I am at this point I'm seeing some glades when we go up north coming into the picture soon.

I'm 155lbs and it'll go on my 154 Riders Choice.

I'm looking at the IPO, Brigade, and Pilot, leaning towards the Brigade, but I really don't know why. I'm thinking I can probably make do with IPOs? Though I'm a little bit unclear with what the rocker 2.0 gets. Apparently there are some boot size issues it fixes, my current boots are a size 8 Ruler.

I don't want to leave something on the table, but I don't want to just throw money at a binding I won't notice a difference in either.

from what i've read the hanger 2.0 is slightly wider to accommodate boots better, that's why i got a pair of drives this year as the original now ipos i had wore through the outer layer of my boots.

Theres no real drawbacks to Hangar 2.0 compared to 1.0. So I say go Brigades.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
