Bindings For Raptor

I am looking for some bindings to complement my Never Summer Raptor. I ride on the East Coast in VT, which is mostly Hardpack and Ice; I maybe encounter 1 or 2 powder days a year. Obviously with the Raptor I will mostly be freerideing but occasionally hit smaller jumps and natural features.

I do have knee pain sometimes and I havenít tried canted footbeds I believe this can help and would like to give it a try.

So far I have been thinking about the Targas but have heard some bad reviews on their ratchets releasing and there toe straps not working well with some boots.

I was thinking about the SPIís but my friend has some ride bindings and his ratchets just stick all the time

I never considered Burton since I donít trust their quality, but have heard great things about there bindings. Which Burton bindings would complement the raptor best?

Any other bindings I should consider?

You want something stiff/responsive to match the board. I went with the Flux DMCC on the Raptor, and am loving the combo. I also considered the Ride SPi/Double Agent and Rome Arsenal.

Got a pair of K2 Auto Ever which I should be receiving today. Will get a chance to test it out this weekend. Hopefully it will work well with the Raptor

I, too, am looking for bindings for my new Raptor. I'm looking at the SPIs, but am also considering the Ride Revolt and Rome Arsenal. Anyone know the difference between those two?

SPis have adjustable anklestrap stiffness and a stiffer, lighter base. Arsenals are a unibody nylon/fiberglass if I remember right.

I would look at DMCC's, SF45's, or Flow NXT-FSE's

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I would probably go with the Targas. Burton CO2s would go well but they are not the most long lived bindings and they cost an awful lot. The K2 Auto Evers are another good option.
