Ride SPi - Day 1

I had my first day with my new Ride SPi bindings today and I give them a big two thumbs up. I am not a park guy, so I can't recommend them for that, but I will say that they were extremely comfortable while giving me great stability and control. We had some nice powder today and they performed like a champ. On the groomed runs they were very responsive and gave me no complaints.

I agree. I have the SPi's and the LX's. The SPi's are definitely far better with zero pressure points and more responsive. However, the LX's aren't bad at all for an entry level binding. They're on my rock board.

I've been considering the SPi's. I don't do rails much, but I do enjoy going off the big jumps and pipe in our local snowboard park while trying to do spins and grabs. Would the SPi's be too stiff? Would I be better off with NRC's?
