The guy at the shop had one and he was telling me that those who demo'd it said it felt very stiff - comparably to the other neversummers I am guessing.

Well, I don't mind the directional twin. It's only 1/2 inch or so wasn't it? The difference is so negligible to me honestly. When I ride switch, that 1/2' is not noticeable... I mainly got it due to...

A stiffer binding makes things sketchy at high speed? Is this because you cannot "feel" the board the same way?

Is it worth it spending the money on new bindings versus my current ones? I'm trying to save a bit of cash... not sure if the upgrade of $250 is worth it from my 2008 Burton Missions to a newer set....

What size would you suggest for me? The store that I contacted only had a 154. I was thinking a 152 would be better for my size.

Can you notice a real major difference between the highback of the SL and Atlas? One is about $30-$40 more.

Hmm don't remember saying that about the Cobra. I have considered it - but I don't remember why I shyed away from it. Maybe not as freestyle friendly as the SL due to it being more stiff in the flex.
