So the rich dude can spend his money but get a binding thats a little more appropriate to his ability.
This is kind of like saying that if you dont ride uber stiff bindings you arnt a good rider...

Why cant good riders who dont want uber stiff bindings have tech in less stiff options?

Am I missing something?

BTW..its doesnt take a guy with lots of money to afford $300-$400 bindings lol
