The NXT-FSE is a better match for the HighLife. More responsive than the AT/SE.

El Hefe are an excellent match as well.

Maestro is another solid choice. Not as stiff as the Hefe (overall), but still responsive.

Rome Targas are sick too if you can find them right now.

The M11 are too soft for the HighLife IMO. You want to find at least mid-stiff bindings for a good match since the HighLife is a stiff board.

He said NXT-FSE's. That's basically a stiffer AT.

I put Capo's on it when I demoed it. Got the job done just fine and matched well.

Targas are just a better binding than Arsenal's in general. Softer maybe, but I would argue more responsive.

Also check out K2 Evers.

I have burton cartels on my 11 highlife. They get the job done and feel responsive enough for me and I do some pretty tight runs through the trees. They also have cant this year.

The capo, maestro and El heffe look sweet too or the flows if you prefer that.
Just wanted to add another option.
I may have gone with the maestro as they look just right, but the cartels were on sale and in my size which is rare in Japan.

dahhh, you just had to recommend a cheaper binding. i can afford whatever binding is best but it can be hard not to take a good deal.
