I swung around another few shops today, and found a pair of 2010 Rome Arsenals (small/medium)that I can probably haggle down to the same price. These bindings seem to be acceptable at the beginner level...any thoughts on these? They appear to be a bit stiffer than normal and I'm not sure if that means they should be combined with a softer boot, or if I should use a harder boot (I can basically get either the Northwave freedoms or legends for +/- $10 so I'm not fussed)
'tis a pretty stiff binding meant for hard charging. Aka not beginner-friendly at all.
