What are features to look for in bindings?

What do you look for in bindings these days?
How do you match it to your riding?
How do the characteristics of different parts of the binding affect performance?
What kind of bindings are good for what kind of boards?
Do you also match the binding to your boots too (other than simply just checking if it fits)?
Does "weight" (like those expensive Union Force MC bindings) really make a difference?

What else is there to look for?

The type of feature depends on the type of riding you want to do. For example, I'm interested in freeriding so I want a binding that is stiff and will respond to my movements with less effort. A terrain park rider would prefer more forgiving bindings to accommodate landings and such.

Once you go down that path, there is more than enough information on the web to answer all of your questions, you'll probably become overwhelmed. I like to youtube bindings and listen to people give reviews.

I look for bindings that can be adjusted to fit varying brands/models/sizes of boots.
