well if u wanna pay 400 bucks the get the burton c60's

if you want a good binding, then go for the new burton customs.

the new ones come with the capstraps

there good

also look at the ride ex's and lx's

there both solid bindings

ride is the most consistant company when it comes to bindings

the only con is that only the high end rides come with capstraps


capstraps are a necessity though

technine 07 mfm...way sick. and they come with a LIFETIME warranty so if they ever break you get a new pair or they fix them for free

they are 199.99 and thats a damn good buy to have such a good warranty


Burton customs Ive heard arent bad this year and as zagfan said there inexpensive and have capstraps

It is most important to make sure your boots match well with your binding.  Salomon boots need a moderatly narrow heel cup, and 32 is wide.  All other are kind of in between those are the extremes.

Ride it like you stole it.

I like my Ride Flight Tomcats. They mixed up the ride line up this year so I guess something like the beta mvmt has taken their place. I think you need to post more if you want better input. I got my bindings because I wanted a responsive binding that was fairly light. I think things such as the type or riding you do and your budget determine which binding would be best suited for you.

i have Salomon SPX 55's from last year that are amazing. I don't know what the equivalent is this year, maybe the SPX 45's. Salomon is not such a popular choice but i think they are solid and they do exactly what they should. They are extremely responsive and comfotable.
I rode Technine Team 1's (they have red and black separately this year, as opposed to the black with red roses/lettering last year) in the Spring and once in the Summer and i loved them, too. They were a little more forgiving, sexy as hell, and cheaper. well, i got mine for 80 bucks on ebay, but i think they are only 200ish here for this year's.
this place is bleak.

I don't know about the T9's SnowAce.  I rode a pair for a while and I really wan't impressed with the.  I had the Marc Franks too and they didn't do much for me but bling.  Anyway, I have heard that Union makes a pretty sick binding, but I have never actually rode them.  Also, Soloman makes some solid dog pile.  But, that's just my opinion Big%20smile

Nope, mine were from a few years ago.  I did hear that that year they had a bad line, but I just wasn't impressed at all.  Kind of left a bad taste in my mouth.

The new Ride SPI bindings. Those things rock!. Too bad Sierra isn't going to sell them. I would have bought them from sierra, but oh well.

rode the cartels last year didnt like them at all but that might have been cuz im a little short haha the high back on those is pretty tall and i had a hard time adjusting them to be comfortable.  i really dig drakes and solomons theyre solid

Did I miss something?  I don't see where he said what kind of riding he does and what kind of board/ boots its going with.  Kinda need to know that stuff before you pick a binding.

I end up getting the 2006 White Cartels cause I didn't like how the new white cartels looked. I don't like the fade on the back, but that's just me.
