You want the NOW Drive in that case, not the IPO. Also consider the Burton Diode.

16 Gnu Swallow Tail Carver . 16 NS West . 15 NS Snowtrooper BIA
15 Now Drive . 14 Burton Genesis
14 Flow Hylite

I got the Union Chargers and I do find them very responsive, but it's good to know before you buy them that the highback does not rotate.

i felt a pair of burton diodes on the hill the other day and they dont seem as stiff as they are made out to be. the highback is stiff but the straps are actually fairly soft. the guy riding them was a little disappointed in them and said he felt he lost a lot of response from the straps. cant say much for my personal experience with them but that could be something worth considering.
