New board, time for new bindings.
I will be getting my new board hopefully by the end of the week in the mail so now I have to shop for bindings. I never really knew before that bidings came in so many different styles and riding preferences. My current board has a very cheap pair of Firefly's therefore they are definately not being transfered over.
Here is some important info:
-Board is an Endeavor Diamond 142 (picture bellow)
-Boots are womens 6.5 Ride Sash
-Riding will be mostly on hardpack with some ice however I will be trying out glades and small jumps this winter.
-budget is under $220, the cheaper the better of course.
-I don't mind older models, or gently used.
These are the ones that I've been looking at for colour however I have no clue what biding stats mean or what I should be looking for such as softer, stiffer, high back, flex,... I don't know what they translate to when riding or what I should be looking for. So this is what I like look wise with my board however I have no clue what's right for me and what's not. I also have no clue as to which are good and which are crappy.
-Burton Lexa Tucan
-Burton Scribe Miami Nights
-Rossignol Justice 2010 or 2011
-Flux GU30 pink
-Rome Strut in blue
Please help with new suggestions or help narrow down this list.
Burton or Rome.
Had good experiences with both companies.
My daughter has a couple of pairs of the Lexas and really likes them. She loves the Tucan color.
The Lexas are a great option.
Instead of the Rome Shift, I would recommend the Madisons - they are more all-mountain freestyle oriented and are some of the best out there.
Union Milan or Trilogy.
K2 Auto Agogo
K2 Virtue bindings

both under your budget significantly and in medium which should fit 6.5 easily.
Burton Lexas are a good option, I've never met a girl that dislike riding them. I ride Rome Madisons and I'm obsessed with them, and again-I've never met a girl that disliked them.
Union Milans are a good option as well. A little stiffer than the others but good for all mountain riding.
so yeah, i felt very comfortable in the fluxes. no gripes yet, and i am definitely a fan. all the boys i ride with have flux bindings and love em to death.. so i know lots who will vouch for the brand.
and plus they come in cute colors like emerald and pink.
Thanks for the info!! Right now I'm trying to win a pair of FLUX bindings on facebook but I'm up against a High School Kid with close to 700 friends so it's not looking good. I always seem to be behind by about 4 or 5 votes but that still puts me in second place.
If I don't win, I'll probably go with the best deal I can find between the Burton Lexa Tucan and the FLUX bindings.
Here is the link again just incase.. :)
Make sure you're logged into facebook first.
