Question Bindings

Im looking for bindings, after deciding in a K2 Parkstar (Wide)

I'm an all mountain rider who loves kickers, but this year I will definateky be moving some of my interest into the park next year (rails, more boxes etc)

I currently have some Burton Cartels, and I like them, although they are the only bindings I've ridden besides step in rentals. I like the highbacks.

I've read great things about Flow and flux, as well as Ride. Thanks for the help.

I love Flux bindings, but even as someone who doesn't care for Burton, I must say there is nothing wrong with Cartels. Any reason why you want to get new bindings?

My cartels have a small problem, the toe strap has a break in it where the cinch is connected. I don't know if that makes sense, I don't know how to describe it. I would gladly just repair my cartels and keep them (or find some new cartels from last year or something). Which flux bindings should i look at? I hear that they're super soft which is great, but i don't want them to be "too soft" for charging it

Dude, contact Burton. They'll probably just send you a new toe strap. Worst case scenario, it'll set you back a couple of bucks.

Thanks a lot! I just called up Burton and they're sending me a new set of toe straps, free, no questions asked. Legit!

But still, I would like to find some bindings <$100 that i could use on my parkstar and not have to switch out bindings everytime i used my old board (one of the reasons I'm shopping for bindings in the first place.

Hell ya! I found some new 2008/2009 Flux Super Titans for $99.99. Granted they're a few years back, but they're still good bindings!
