So I'm just looking for a little advice.
I'm looking to buy all new gear since everything is to small after a few years away from riding.
I'm looking to grab some boots first and have my eye on two diff pairs the ions and the slx. But I'm not sure if I should just wait for next years stuff?
I already know what boot size I am going to fit into so I don't think it should hold me back from buying a board or bindings while things are on sale.
Should I wait for next seasons stuff or take advantage of the sales.
Or maybe hold off on the boots and get a board and bindings.

I've owned both from the same year.

I ended up returning the SLX.

While the slx were lighter the ions are actually stiffer and I prefer that.

Also the ions on my foot do not have the same strange pressure point that the slx had.

This is my 3rd pair of ions.
