CAD, Podium, nidecker - carbon.

so, here's no plastic one in the thread.. yet
but i'm still in doubt what to get... #1 is still Spi. and i still want to find CAD or Podium

I think your order should be

CAD
SPI
Burton C60
Flux DMCC

If you can't get the CAD's for your price range for SPI. Last years C60's can be had for around $230. If you are ok with going for used check these out:
GearTrade - Ride - CAD Snowboard Binding White, XL - Excellent

Force MC's can be added if we're throwing out C60's.

My top picks would be SPi's, CAD's, and Force MC's. All '10 or '09

I got Flux now, but a softer model. I i definaley want to get anothe brand. Flux is great, I was riding it for 2 years, and i hadn't cracked under my 100 kilos after all the crashes, but i wanna get one with lots of the metal.. There's probability to get Elan Vertigo board also.. so no plastic.. and no Burton )))
Thanks for the link, it seems to be a good bargain.

It's too pricey when '11, and it seems noone sells '09 or '10 force mc's... but that's cool though..

Now i'm choosing between used CADs and new Spi =)

The Fluxes you have are not their stiffer model. You want the Super Diamond which is renamed the DMCC for this season. Other options are the Rome Arsenal, Ride SPi/CAD, K2 Auto Ever.

Simply saying metal is stiffer than plastic is pointless. In any case The Rome and Ride models I listed use aluminum bases.

Last year's NRC's are great. Very responsive and comfortable.

Anything by ride will work great though.

rome uses plastic bases with al. heal cups.

metal bases look at ride, catek, and the now dead bent metals

if you can find a old pair of bent metal "step ins" (not really a step in binding just the name) they are the be all end all in stiff freeride binders

Oh just get the SPI's already. Unless you find the CADs for an affordable price. You won't go wrong with either. Hell, if it is just between those two now and you still can't decide, base it off of color. How about them apples?
