Upgrade help

So I have a pair of ancient step-ins and am looking to upgrade 'em for a couple of reasons (they're from the mid-90's mostly) so I been lookin' into a couple of different kinds. I'm looking for something in the low $200 is as high as I can go (high $100 preferable ) and I wouldn't mind a last year's model. So my question is, what can you guys suggest in that range that'd fit someone who's beginner-intermediate? I pretty much stick to snowbowl in AZ (and not the bc) and am kinda hoping I can get something that'll last/grow with me. Unions seem to be pretty popular around here and the more I look at flows the more they seem appealing but anything fitting that description would be beautiful Also, unless absolutely necessary, no ragging on a set you've never ridden before please Thanks for readin this long winded thing

Nope just the bindings for 200, it's kind of a weird situation but boots I can get, don't need to factor them in. And my boot size is 10

If my board had 2 rows of 4 screw holes on either side, could I still use the P1 if I used the old plate? I read that they use 3 screws in a triangle instead of the 4 in a square I have.

Thanks for the time btw

You have to get conversion plates to use Burton bindings on other boards.

As for step ins, I am a Flow user. I use the Flow NXT-FSE. Love them. They are stiff and very light. If you prefer a freestyle flex, the NXT-AT line is great for that. That next tag link is cool with great prices.

any burton dealer will give you the 4d disks or sell thim to you for like $5. if anyone needs a set i will ship you my extra set for $5. i think the new disks mount to either hole patern as well
