To buy or not to buy... Sierra FK

I already purchased a Burton Fix for this season but I want to get the Sierra FK (besides it's 250 right now). WOuld it be a big difference?

Or should I get the LB Banana or Gnu Pickl? but they are more pricier than the Sierrascope. I wanted to test out the magne-traction because I'm on the Ice Coast.

I found the Burton fix a bit stiff for my liking. I'm thinking of just getting the Sierra for riding out the end of this season and for next season.

I'm 5'8", 155lbs, and wear 7.5 shoes. Should I get the 152 or 156?

I was also thinking of pairing it with Union Force Bindings. Would medium bindings work with size 7.5 boots?

Get the Sierra FK

And size would depend on if you ride powder more or park/groomers more

The FK tech is amazing, ask around

for 250 the sierrascope is a no brainer. buy one before they are out. im 6'0 160 and ride a 156 but i tried out my buddies 151 ns slr and i could tell the difference in size. since youre on the east, grab the 152 since you wont see much powder there. if your burton board is 156 or bigger most def get the sierrascope in 152 and enjoy the playfulness.

Forces are a more "do everything ok/good" binding

390's are about as good of park bindings as you can find, but are a little to soft for big all mountain riding

Really just depends on what you like to ride

I'm 6'3 and 195 lbs and just picked up the Sierrascope 156. I hope it does me good when I get to ride it at Northstar come Friday, 2/26!

I'm pairing it up with the Union SuperPros; it's gonna be such a sick setup both functionality and aesthetically!!
