For me the ankle strap just hits my foot wrong and causes pain. I am the only person I know of with this problem with K2, so I really wouldn't worry about it.
Urethane is just softer overall. You can't drive into it as much as nylon. It's a more skate feel. Can you jump it? Well, Jake O.E. rides no backs and recently hasn't been tying the top portion of his boots, and was still trowing big wallrides and huge gap to front lips at HD&HR. So you can, it's just a personal preferance thing.
If you just don't want that highback, get Uprises. Same binding minus the Tweakback. I like softer highbacks so for me it would be Nationals.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
