Ride EX 2009 to 2011
Anyone know what improvements/modifications have been made to this binding over the years given? I have found the 2009's new for $110, and the 2011s for $130. I have picked these bindings based on what I have read as far as being a great budget binding. I do mostly groomed trails, a little bit of small jumps. No terrain park stuff, at least yet. I plan on purchasing these bindings and putting them on a K2 Raygun board.
Difference is only $20, so the obvious seems to go with the newer ones. However sometimes "improvements" = cost reductions and a lesser product. Input would be great, looking to buy tomorrow as that is when the sale ends on the board and the bindings.
Another option, should I wait and pick up a better binding in the next couple months? However, seeing that a decent 2009 binding is still going for $110, how much could I really gain?
Right now I have the K2 Raygun paired with 2011 Ride EX coming to about $400 shipped.
