LOL - OK, I sure may want to try a number of things, here's a list:
  • new Spark - Deeluxe boots in case I need crampons
  • new Spark bindings that I can switch easily to my solid boards
  • heck - why not a new split - interesting things are coming up on the market
  • another solid Smokin board - love the Best Buds pic but probably ATX vs. CTX
  • new softer leather boots that can be custom stiffened w/ inserts
  • never tried Flux binginds so...
  • but I love my Union MC so maybe the newest model
  • ... surely something else will come up

Is this better?

But likely they wouldn't make much difference...

I am very happy with what I have right now. Gave some boots, boards, and bindings to friends this season and still have all I need. My single 2013 board-related purchase has been Burton Hails last week - only to replace a double boa Vans from 2012 that I gifted and really to try a softer lace boot, I wanted it for my Whistler vacation. Oh, and a Trew shell as I am hating Westcomb after bad customer service experience and don't want to represent

Are those soft leather boots with custom stiffened inserts for split boarding purposes? Or do you utilize in some other fashion? Got an example?

Again, this is hardly relevant.

Yes, soft leather boots for splitting - on the down, and also up, if conditions allow.

A stiff boot will offer better stability on steeper side hill traverses. The Vans I gifted had 2 plastic pieces to insert in each tongue, but I actually want something that I can also change lateral stiffness from soft to hard as I need it. The latest Spark XDLR has different tongue stiffness, and I expect that it's laterally stiff - which is OK in some cases, but too restrictive or not fun in others.

I guess softer boots that I can stiffen up with inserts as I like and need both fore / aft and side to side will be more versatile and enjoyable.
