So I'm interested in getting the sparks ignition II. I wear a women's size 7.5 boot - Salomons so they're fairly low profile.

Anyway, I presume that I need the small size. I'm trying to save some money by buying the base only and purchasing the Bent Metal binding straps separately. However, can not find Bent Metal Restraint bindings in a small/medium, only medium/large. So my question is: Does the small Ignition II complete binding setup come with binding straps that are a small/medium or medium/large equivalent?

Also - any coupons/discounts? Splitboarding is turning out to be many times more money than a resort board setup (and i still need crampons!)

Muchos gracias in advance

Jules

If you haven't already bought your sparks, you might want to see if your regular binding straps and highback will work with a spark baseplate. I know a few people have used stuff from other brands, so you might want to check. I don't know how the biscuit stuff is, but the restraint straps are pretty weak. They're really comfy, but the ladders strip easy if I snug them down and the padding is falling apart. I'm probably going to throw my old Drake stuff on them. Either way, you'll be stoked on the sparks. Splitboarding is pricey, but you have to look at it as a lifetime season pass to every mountain range in the world. :wink:
