I am getting pretty tired of having an incredibly short trick set due to a foot cramp. I have a size 11-12 foot and ride a 43" D3 custom X with an XL Wiley wrap. One of my roommates has a Fluid Motion hardshell and she really likes it. I am considering getting one but am a broke college student and don't have a huge budget. I'm not sure how important releasing from the ski is but what other features are worth spending the extra money on? And does anyone know which binding I should go with? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
