Ask yourself this; how much money and time are you willing to part with? Is it worth the gamble to discover you don't like the overall experience of both ascending and descending? Are the ascents you are likely to undertake, really that tough?
If money is no option I'd say give HBs a try. I certainly loved the tech toe pieces, but the boots and bindings (within my budget) were considerably heavier than my sparks and imperials. That and the overall touring experience was just off.
