Upgrading from Flows.

Hi,

I am at a total loss and confused as what to buy. I have flow flite III's which were great for me as a beginner to snowboarding. Easy in & out. Took me ages to set them up just right though.

I bagged a Head Rush Rocker last season which is a softer board over my old one and like how easy it is to ride.

I am not one for bombing down the slopes at high speed, I have just learnt how to do small jumps and 180's.

For bindings I am looking for a step up form what I have that is good for freestyle and not too expensive.

Ideas I have so far are:
Salomon Rhythm
Rome Shift
Drake King
Drake Fifty
or maybe even the Flow Five SE or Quattro SE's

Any advice is welcome or other recommendations.

Cheers

First of all if you want not too expensive, buying higher end used bindings is a great idea, I've done it with great satisfaction. Last year I bought some '12 Malavitas ($259 retail) lightly used from a forum member for $125. One of my best gear purchases ever for sure.

Some really good cheaper bindings you missed that I would put above the others in your list:

k2 Indy
Burton Custom

Imo those Drakes are non-contenders.

Thanks for the info, just had a look at both and can get Burton's for around 125 new and K2 Indy's are about 100 which is good.
