Does Salomon make good bindings?

I'm looking at the salomon relay ring women's bindings.

I just bought a Nitro Mystique 156 2010 board and a burton coco boot (size 9) and am looking for bindings. I'm just a beginner heading more towards freeride rather than freestyle. It says these bindings are all-mountain for intermediate to advanced riders with a medium flex.

It seems like all the beginner bindings out there don't really seem that great to me. I definately want to stick to traditional strap bindings I think. Are these bindings a good choice even though I'm a beginner? I'm going snowboarding once a week which I think is important to mention because my skills will hopefully advance much faster than someone that only goes 5 or 6 times a season.

If you have a salomon boot the salomon bindings are really good. I had some relay thrust and they were nice just a bit too soft. The salomon nbindings i looked at were in the price range of 209.00 and at that price theres other choices I would go with. It all depends on your budget but if you get some salomons at a good deal then its worth to try them

I've got a flexible budget... But I have burton boots. I'm not a big fan of burton but I got my boots for 50% off and fit well. I heard burton bindings aren't that great and you have to buy some kind of a plate thingy to put burton bindings on a non-burton board

burton est are for burton boards with channel you can also buy burton bindings that have the conventional 4x4 screw pattern.

I love my Solomon bindings...don't know what model they are...but they are very durable and dependable....the ratchets have never given me a problem. Reliable, quick-release ratchets and comfortable strap padding...leave me wanting nothing else in the binding department.
