Default Need new freeride bindings, help please!

Hi All! Newbie here at Snowboarding Forum. Been reading & searching & researching, but still need a little help on what to go with on some new bindings. Looking at freeride specfic--I'm an old fart and don't spend time in the park! Board is a Never Summer Titan 169. Looking for a stiffer but not uncomfortable setup to go with this board. G/F just got my Christmas present--a pair of Burton Ions, size 10. Just need to nail down some bindings. Union Force SL, Ride Double Agent, Burton C60 & Flux DMCC are all on the radar. Talk me into or out of these OR tell me what you like & why. Tough to glean info for older guys that just cruise but still like speed & laying a trench or two! THANKS EVERYBODY!

All good selections. Especially the Double Agent and C60. Lots of people love Flux on this site and personally, I hate Union Toe Straps. If you are interested in C60's check mine out

Saw yours for sale, but think I would need a size M in Burton--my boots are size 10 Burton Ions. See lots of the L for sale--dammit!

Ride SPi's or Double agents. Don't drop for C60's or Force MC's. DMCC's are about as much as I would spend. Anything more than that is overkill.

Ya, the Double Agents look good. Figure the SL's in the Union line would be good enough, just wonder if the toe straps are ok now & if they would be stiff enough. C60's on blowout would be nice--I need M, you can find L all day!
Thanks guys--anyone else have some input?

Since you say you are older and it seems like you are in search for a comfortable pair of bindings, you are a prime candidate for a pair of Flow bindings.

The NXT-FSE bindings are good option. Fairly stiff and very light.

I recommend them for you because they are very, very comfortable. Also, entry and exit is a breeze once you have them set up. So that means less bending down to strap in. Or if you are a sit down strapper, you no longer have to do that.

Flow bindings distribute the pressure evenly on your feet with their uni-cap strap tops. This means foot fatigue will be greatly reduced compared to traditional bindings.

However, if you've been riding traditional bindings, your first few runs on Flows will feel real different.

OK folks. Leo has been a HUGE help & has narrowed the field for me a bit. I'm kind of leaning toward the Double Agents, but have not decided yet. Anyone have strong feelings for or against these? OR for that matter, have a fave freeride binding that has not been mentioned here. THANKS SO MUCH!!!

go with the Double Agents. I have used NRCs, Deltas, and CADs. Loved them all. good ankle straps, amazing toe straps, comfortable and durable. If the DA's are anything like the CADs they will be perfect for free riding. One of the stiffest highbacks ever, responsiveness of aluminum and quality construction that wont let you down.
