Default Bindings for a Beginner

Hey guys, I'm new to snowboarding and am really lost on picking a pair of bindings. I'm looking for a cheap pair of bindings, hopefully under $100 if that is manageable, that won't break on me for a while. I've only snowboarded once before so I won't be doing any hardcore riding very soon. My boots are size 10.5. Also, if I'm forgetting any important information, just lemme know and I'll post it up.

Thanks!

I would pick the EX over the LX. The EX is a solid binding that doesn't seem to have many mechanical problems (I haven't had any or heard of any). The LX is a low budget solution and judging from the reviews it shows. I would shell out the extra cash for the EX, they won't let you down.

Pick a "brand name " over the cheapo no name ones. My girlfriend didn't know if she was gonna "stick with the sport", but one thing was for sure: The cheap "trans CU" bindings fell apart after about 20 runs. Kinda dangerous... I then gave her my old cartels, she loves them.

^ I 100% agree. My buddies who work at shops only stock a few LXs and hardly push'em.
