I migrated from the Targa, over the years, to the Karhu, HH and Axl and then the Freeride and now the Freedom. The Freedom is plenty active for me, here in Utah. I don't think there's much point in getting the Freeride over the Freedom unless you ski back east resort only. The Freedom may even be a bit easier to get used to than the Freeride, if you've never been on NTNs. The NTN is active immediately in its range of motion, so you have to "drive the cuff" of the rear boot more. Once you're used to it, they ski very well.
