yes, another which binding thread

my buddies girl friend wants to buy him some new bindings, she only wants to spend between $150-200

i have Rome Targa's and love them, 390's are little too much for her, but i thought the Arsenals might be a good choice... what are your thoughts and suggestions?

Last year I got a pair of Ride RX bindings for $80. $150-$200 can probably get you anything you want if you do some bargain-hunting.

Flow has some really nice bindings in that price range too.

Almost everyone who I've heard from that has gotten Flux bindings love them.

i've looked at some K2, and thought about Unions, but my friend is somewhat of a beginner and i dont think he will like them simply because Unions look very simple and not flashy..

Read up on the issues with the new Union baseplates before you pull the trigger on them.

Little bit of everything, we're in Ontario so there isn't anything big.

I love the Targas, so I'd say those. But, I will also suggest the Ride RX's in the price range.
