Looking for reasonably priced binding advice

I just ordered a Sierra Team as my first snowboard and am now looking around for bindings. I'd like to keep them around the $150-200 range - more likely the lower end of that as I'm willing to sacrifice some quality in the bindings to ensure I get the boots I want. I'm a freeride / all-mountain rider and just looking for something straightforward, reliable, and reasonably responsive. Opinions?

The caveat I should mention is that I'm looking to put a $100 gift card from Sierra into use, so ideally they'd be available on Sierra's site...

Rome Arsenals would also be a good choice.

Or look for last year's Ride Deltas. Should be on sale for around $100-$120. The new Deltas are bad ass though. The cant pads are so nice!

I'm seriously considering the Ride EXs as they seem very well-priced for the features, based on my search on this forum. Any more opinions on them? I know people had issues with the screws coming loose on earlier versions, but it tentatively sounds like that's been fixed...?

If I were to spend a little more, it sounds like Union Forces would be the way to go, but as a complete beginner I don't know that I can justify the extra $50, especially as it'd be coming out of my budget for other equipment (i.e. boots!).

A buddy of mines rides the EXs and has had zero complaints. The whole things is aluminum so its not gonna break on ya. The-house.com has the 09 models for 120 and the '10s for 160 i think. If your looking for an even cheaper binding, the Flux Emblems are what I have on my sierrascope and they have treated me super in the freezing temps the poconos have had to offer this season. and they are just so comfortable and responsive...also got those off the-house.com for 105. good luck

I'd recommend Ride too. Check out evogear or other sites that still have some '09s on clearance. The SPis or NRcs are good all mountain models too. Use your gift card at sierra for your boots.
