    Posted: Dec/02/2012 at 5:13pm
So I'm getting a new board, the 2012-13 Never Summer Heritage x 159 with size 12 Burton Ambush boots. I'm 6'0'' 150lb. I will be spending most of my time cruzing, hitting jumps and with occasional time in the park. This will be my everything board for the next 5 years My question is what bindings should I get? I will be mainly riding groomed runs and pow occasionally. These are the bindings I have been looking at: Burton Cartel, Genesis, Mission, Ride Capo, Rome 390 Boss, Arsenal, or Union Force. I am looking to spend between $200-300, any additions to this list are welcome, but keep in mind I am trying to narrow it down. Thanks!

From what i can tell everyone on this site leans toward the cartel, mission, the 390, and the force. so you are likely to get some biased answers here... i can tell you that my next board will either have the 390s, the cartels, or the forces. ive never ridden any of these bindings personally but have seen them all in the shop and felt them up, they are all quality. For what your doing the Cartel, 390, or mission would do you fine in my opinion.
It comes and it goes, get it while it lasts.

I cant tell you squat on any of the others, but ive got enough days on my forces to at least tell you what i like about them:

1. Bomb proof. Thee things are pretty much indestructible. And the older and more knackered they get, the better they look ;) 
2. Idiot proof. Super easy to set up, loads of adjustments to tweak your set up. Nothing really to moan about here. Got mine set up, havent had to adjust them. 
3. Cheap as chips.

What i dont like about them:

1. Not much in truth. They were my first proper binding and it just feels utterly natural strapping them in and dicking around on them. I have no idea at all what im missing, so i cant really tell you all that much. :) I dont think this helps much, but thats about all i can say im afraid.

In my opinion the top 3 manufacturers out there are burton union & rome in that order.  Criteria being cost durability & appearance. A set of non EST missions on your NS for around $150 is something to consider.

Heritage is a ripper board, not some soft noodle park stick. Put some responsive bindings with good dampening on the bad boy to get the most out of it. Forget 390's, Forces, or Missions. Cartels at the very least. The Genesis would be my choice for that board for sure. 
I'm just here to look cool...

O.K. thanks for the advice everyone. I'll probably go with the Genesis, because it was already one of my top choices along with the Ride Capo. Can anyone tell me if the Capo would be a good choice also? With The Genesis or the Ride Capo, would the Burton Ambush be to soft or should I look for a different boot? They can be any brand not just Burton. Keep in mind I am looking to spend about $225-275 for boots. Also I don't need quick lace or boa, but it would be nice as long it is adjustable. Having to tie laces would not bother me that much as long as the boots themselves perform well.

I have't ridden the Genesis but I agree with Scorer that you should go with something more responsive for that board.  I loved my Cartels. 

Don't spend so much time pondering which board/boot/bindings to use. It's 90% rider 10% gear. Just go out and have fun!

Thanks I agree but with the other boring 8 months of the year you gotta do something, so I look at the cool new boards/bindings/boots. Then when the snow comes I don't care what I'm riding, as long as it works with me.

It's all preference and all those bindings r similar in flex. I personally like the rome 390s cause they come with canted footbeds but are probably the heaviest outta all of em.

Agree with Scorer, except I think Forces and Cartels are pretty comparable, but 390s are a touch softer than those two (from my memory). Biggest difference is Cartels have traditionally had more forward lean, although not so much any more. If you're going Rome, I'd go with Targas instead.
ROLL ON, BISHES.
