Bindings and Boots For New setup
Alright, I began snowboarding two years ago (man that long?) starting it off with a concussion. Since then I've grown to the point where I love just cruising the mountain and just having fun. For my purposes I've decided on a Prior Pow-Stick as a first board. Yes I know it's not a very orthodox first board, but I'm not a very orthodox kind of guy. I'm roughly 6' and 200 lbs. but still growing. I'm thinking to get the 181, as I can deal with it relatively easily (my normal ride now is a rental 168W). The place that I'm hung up on now is some solid freeride bindings and boots.
For boots so far what I've come up with is the Salomon Malamutes, as I've seen them in a few different freeride setups with good results.
The place that I'm really hung up on is bindings. All the supposedly good freeride bindings I've found have tons of bad reviews... I don't want to spend the money on Cateks, but I'd like something with good response. I don't plan on doing a whole lot of huge jumps, but in freeriding I'll probably hit a few. If you guys could point me in a good direction I would be most appreciative.
Mods, If there's a more appropriate forum for this thread, please move it.
