Is it worth it?

So with the 2013/14 season practically over, and the 2015 gear dropping right after summer. Is the new gear worth the extra money? How much different is the gear that is 60% on sale then the gear that will come out.
Will the bindings/boards be that BIG of a jump to drop an extra $150 dollars on each?

What are your thoughts? If you needed a new board and bindings, would you get the old gear now. Or wait for the slightly newer gear?

this can only be answered model by model. a general answer will never be right or available. some years are repeats, others, upgrades, some, minor, others, major. (sorry I couldn't fit more commas)

It depends. Popular brand/size may not be available later. If you really want the board/binding/whatever, I think at 30-40% now would be a good enough deal to get it now.

Waiting to save the extra 10% at the risk of not being available later may not be worth it.

Agree. Most of the time changes are minor from year to year so better to buy now, but occasionally there are big changes.

Your just full of questions. Buy something cheap now, and buy more cheap shit next year. Nobody is going to have your answer, it all comes from personal preference learned while riding.
