I have just spent the last 4 evenings reading all the posts in this thread
I go boarding with a bunch of skiers, so if I can avoid keeping them waiting, then it is a bonus. I am intermediate level, and do 99% mountain riding, any natural jumps or baby jumps on the park are a possibility for a bit of fun, but not of utmost importance. I have previously had Flow FL-11ís, Flow Pro-11FRís and recently Union Force bindings. The Unions were good, but the toe-strap often slipped when capped. I live in the UK, so only get 1 or 2 weeks a year boarding, so want to maximise the fun when I do go. It looks like a choice between the NX2-AT/SE/GT/RS here in the UK. The AT/SE are £200 (approx. 333 US dollars), the GT/RS are £300 (approx. 500 US dollars), so a significant increase. I am still not sure if the NX2-SE or NX2-AT are right for me. I believe either would suffice, but, still have a few concerns about the toe-strap of the SE, based purely on the comments on this thread. I have size 9 Burton Ambush boots if that helps, which are extremely light, but very wide at the front (the reason I bought them) and would imagine I would want the large binding.
Any comments would be welcome, as I go to Austria in a few weeks.
Also, I would like to say huge thanks to Wiredsport
