What are some QUALITY bindings?
 
I'm sick of my piece of shit Rome bindings breaking for the third time in one season, so am looking for a more legitimate binding company. I had my old Morrow Sanction bindings that were tanks and lasted me 5 seasons and my friend another 2. Still going strong and not a thing broke even after many beatings. Do they make bindings like this anymore?

My Rome's on the other hand have had the highbacks snapped, ankle strap broke, and forward lean clicker ripped off....all over 2 months of riding. Yup...

Anyway, I'm wondering if there are any companies that are known for making quality, bomb-proof type bindings, or if new lighter technology for bindings means they're going to be cheap plastic and break often.

you can have any two of the three attributes listed below

cheap
light
durable

I got a pair of burton genesis and really like them, and they seem very well built to me

Bingo. In bindings, I like simplicity. Rome tries to get to cute with all of their adjustments. The more complicated, the more shit there is to break.

That's the stuff I wish I knew...all I want durability and some canting for my knees.

The Union Factory's have both. Super durable, canted, not too heavy, but pretty stiff. I like them because they're responsive. Not sure what kind of riding you are going to be doing but I can't recommend them enough.

if you even weigh 180 or more you will likely have issues with breaking shit from just about any company's "light" binding. not sure which Rome you were riding or what you do in fact weigh but its something to think about before you go buying diodes or superlight unions or fluxes or something.

Loving my Burton Genesis', I've got Cartels on another board and they're also brilliant. Have never had an issue, I'd recommend them highly.

freaking love my union force. strong as fuck. heel cup is aluminum and the buckles are magnesium. I think if I ride fast enough, they might catch fire. JK.

K2 Formula. Probably one of the greatest meat and potatoes binding out there.

This. ^

Also, if you have a chance to look at them in person.. do so.

Just holding a Burton binding you know the quality is there. It's difficult to explain, but hold them in your hands and you'll know what i mean; despite the Burtons feeling really light, they are still mega solid and give you just that feeling when you hold them. Union too, but are heavier.
