Binding recommendation for Fun Slinger

Got me a NS Fun Slinger. Sold a bunch of other stuff so dont really have many binding options laying around besides my Ride Capo. Will be using board for pretty much exclusively park and messing around on natural features.

Will the ride Capo work well enough or should I grab something else.

Any other suggestions for something not in the $300 range, looking more at past years models $150-$200

Just get some Burtons, even the Freestyles are decent for the money but you'll be able to find some past season Vitas or Cartels for less than 200.

Honestly I dont really know why, but I have never liked any of the Burton bindings I have tried...maybe its because they are all so bulky and made from plastic.

you can find flux ds for under $150 if you search really hard for last years/used. Now pilots/selects, rome mob boss or 390 boss, union contact (I'd shell out an extra $70 and get the superpro), burton malavitas... the binding world is your oyster with $150-200. most of last years models are already scooped up.

Flux and Now are plastic also (I'm pretty sure?) which is good because I really don't like metal bindings. And Bulky? I smell a Union fanboy? If great board feel and high levels of comfort are not things you look for in a binding I'm not sure what to tell you.

They're not my favorite, but as for the plastic comment, there's a reason why Ride is pretty much the only company left sticking with a full metal chassis - it sucks. Zero play out of the binding chassis doesn't exactly make for a great ride unless you're a pure freeride guy.

I prefer a little softer binding on the Funslinger, but that's a decent price if you want Cartels.

I'm not a big Union guy, but the Contact Pro might be another one to look at. Rome Katana would be another to consider.
