Default Replacing my bindings?

Right now I have a pair of Liquid DLQ bindings with the paired boots.


Just like any other boot, but with metal on the sole at the front, and a peg at the heel to click into the bindings. I'm wondering, with the sales going on right now, should I upgrade into a better binding? I bought this board as a set used, to learn on, so I've never actually ridden in anything else but these boots/bindings so I don't know how good/bad they are compared to the average. The mechanism to hold it in place works really well, no slipping of that at all, but I don't know how much the flex of the boot is hurting performance when I'm maneuvering, compared to strap bindings, since there's no straps to hold the boot down and in place.

I could angle-grind that peg off, or would new boots be better as well?

I just bought a Ride Antic Wide, which I'd mount these on. My riding style is all-mountain/freeride. I'll take the jumps, but no half-pipe. What should I look at that would be worth getting, in my budget range of < $100 size 13 boots, btw.
