Its very tough to find quality new bindings that are $100.  Generally speaking, new bindings that cost that little are going to be junk.  You may want to check Ebay for some used ones if that is your price range.

I'm most likely getting used ones. I got forces, contacts and triads in my sight so far

look around see if you can find some used forces for around that price, the ratchets suck but other then that they're great, another thing to try is looking at REI for last years models they have good deals on rides stuff from the previous year pretty often, I wouldn't suggest the SPi's with a banana though as they are really stiff.

@op can you lay you board down on a hard flat surface (hard wood, linolium etc.) and take a picture of the rocker profile.  There is a rumour going around that the SBs have a bit of C2 going on this year.

Skatebananas blow, but if you want to make it semi-mediocre, get some Forces. But don't listen to this dumbass above, Union bindings, especially high demand ones like forces or contacts, will never be 50% off in your size. I'm sure they will sell out so I'd be ready to stake it out. Plus with the decrease in overall supply this year, I wouldn't count on anything staying around that long again.

PAY MSRP OR CLOSE TO IT FOR ONCE YOU SCRUBS, SUPPORT THE DAMN INDUSTRY.

LEARN BASIC SUPPLY AND DEMAND. IF PEOPLE ONLY BUY WHEN PRICES ARE DOWN = LESS SUPPLY.

I swear Sierra's practices are going to lead people to kill the industry.

lib didn't mention it in literature. They were integrating c2 into various lib boards for a 'long time' without telling the general consumer(at least that is what mike olsen is saying, and others have posted pics of 08,09 boards with c2 like camber that were marketed as btx) miguelmas mentioned that he has had 2(i think) skate bananas that had camber in the tips.
