Drake Fifty Vs Raiden R8

I think I have narrowed my binding choice down to Drake Fiftys and Raiden R8s.

The Drakes are available at 100 for 2010 or 130 for 2011.
The Raidens are 150 for 2008/9.

Just about every review I have seen on the Fifty is good. The Raiden R8 was a special edition Phantom with Carbon Fibre high backs to increase stiffness. Only seemed to be produced for one year and reviews are few, but all good. I do wonder why they were dropped
so soon.

My ride style - cruising goomers/shallow powder. Freeride not Freestyle.
1 week per year. Intermediate. Not into Park/rails.

Any advice from the forum?
