Riot Code I'm really looking forward to the next line of bataleons, would really like to try out the fun.kink and GW. I love the look of the Riot and I have an older Riot at the moment (2009), but it's heavy and stuff, of course that doesn't mean that I won't give it a go

No. I think the logic is that it would be too loose at that point.

Okay! I know that the 2012 line have a very pronounced TBT through the topsheet, which is easily visible in pictures.

However, you can offset any board weight issues with lighter bindings, boots and even outerwear. I'd rather have a relatively heavier/longer lasting board than a light one with heavy bindings, boots, etc.
That's some thing I need to work on for next season. My Flow NXT bindings are a bit on the heavier side, due to the forged aluminium baseplate, as well as wearing heavy down clothing, particularly the pants.

I have a Rome Artifact Rocker and Rode a DC PLY this year and they did not seem heavy at all (well the Rome did slightly but not while riding) so that gives an idea of what I'm used to.
