Broke my first bindings..5150 sucks

So, I just started snowboarding last year and went cheap... I got 5150 board and 51050 bindings. Luckily I got Burton boots which I love and have no complaints. I can't really tell much about board because only one I've ever rode but the bindings are absolute shit. Little things have broken on them all this season.. I've had to make little adjustments here and there. Then last week at my local hill my toe strap snaps off and the guy at lodge basically said cuz its 5150 and their poor design he can't fix it. Sooo I've decided to upgrade my bindings this year. I am up for just about anything. I have a budget of around 200 bucks to spend on new ones. I ride all mountain... doing everything from double black diamonds, moguls, glades, rails, jumps whatever there is I give it a go. Ps I am not looking for a beginner binding anymore because I ride all the time and have improved greatly in one year. Anyways any ideas on a great all around binding for reasonable price I'd appreciate.

These are good all-mountain bindings. Once set-up, strapping in is a breeze too.

I would say Union Force, Drake Super Sport or Burton Cartel.

I concur. I have a set of these that I use as an "all-around" binding, both for hard charging and a park board. They work out really well and have been pretty durable so far.

I would suggest Raiden Blackhawks. They have great response and a super comfy ankle strap.
