I got some suggestions earlier, however it was hard to find them in my budget or at a reputable dealer. The 2013 Union Flite Pros looked nice and for a good price, $169: On Sale Union Flite Pro Snowboard Bindings Black/Green 2013
. I heard they might be too soft however. If you guys could also give me suggestions for a reliable website to buy from, that would be much appreciated. I have been looking at Buckmans Ski Shop & Snowboard Shop Skis, Snowboards, Ski Boots, Gear, Apparel - Buckmans.com
and The House Burton Snowboards, Snowboard Boots, Bindings, Jackets, Pants, Clothing, K2, Ride, DC, Holden, Bonfire
the Flite is a good choice, and arguably the best binding for out the $$$.
It's a softer binding than most Union, but unless you're a really big guy, it won't be an issue.
Phil Jacques rides them regularly. A bunch of his part from last year he's on Flites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90WJEaaBjmI
Also, Danny Kass' binding is based off the Flite. Danny rides them in all conditions and loves em. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsVAIl6AE0w
