I picked up a reflex binding system for a pretty good deal for my slalom, and was thinking about moving over to a hardshell for trick. I've never tricked with a hardshell...
What are opinions on learning flips? Try and learn the flips, then switch over? Or switch over and bite the bullet. Is a releasable binding advantageous during the learning process?
I'm a 1120 tricker on a single pass.
on a side note... I've got an old beat up KD trick that's 43". Wiley binding on it. If anyone is moving up to the D3 Aira, i'd be happy to pick up a newer used 43" trick ski.
