Need some freeride suggestions for my Slackcountry

I currently have a pair of large Burton CO2s on my Slackcountry right now, but they don't quite fit too well with my minimal footprint boot (Burton SLX size 10). I'm looking for a pair of Ride CADs to replace the CO2s, but they're pretty hard to come by so I'm open to other suggestions. Would the Ride SPi perform well on the Slackcountry? I'd like to keep the price under $200 and an overall stiff binding comparable to the CO2....

SPi would be a great match for that board. Also the Rome Arsenal which can be had for cheap, even new. Oh and last year's Flux Super Diamond, almost same as this year's DMCC.

I'm leaning towards the SPi right now. How does the SPi compare to the Rome Targa? I bought a set of new Targas for my NS SL, but might think of going with something different (Ride Alpha maybe).

I rocked Targas on my SL-R last yr, and it was an amazing combo. I'd want something stiffer for a freeride pow board...then again the Slackcountry is surprisingly softer than I expected, not really that stiff to be honest.

I ride K2 auto evers on my Slackcountry. Works great for me!

I love K2 Auto Evers as well. However, the C02's are stiffer if memory server right.

Yeah I am looking for something at least as stiff as the CO2s.

I'm pretty much narrowed it down to a pair of CAD or SPi bindings. The Flux ones are sweet, but tough to find at a good price.

CAD if you can find it. The SPI's are more than stiff enough. I love those bindings (2011)

If you can afford it, then CAD for sure. The adjustability is nice to have, and who cares about a few ounces on a pow setup.
