Question Which bindings to choose *help please*

So first of all i'm new to the forum, i'm from Slovenia so hi everyone!

Okay, i've been snowboarding for a couple of years now, my setup is all-mountain i mostly ride on piste, but whenever there is a chance i do some powder too
I got an average board, nothing fancy (it needs to hold for another year) and boots will be purchased next season aswell, since this one is about to end.
Due to a social status of a student my budget is limited, but what i am looking into is

BURTON FREESTYLE 2010/11 bindings
Blue Tomato Shop | Burton Freestyle 10/11 Binding | Burton | Soft Bindings |*Bindings


SALOMON ARCADE 2010/2011 bindings
Blue Tomato Shop | Salomon Arcade 10/11 Binding | Salomon | Soft Bindings |*Bindings

ATOMIC ZOMBIE 2010/2011
Blue Tomato Shop | Atomic Zombie 10/11 Test Binding | Atomic | Soft Bindings Test |*Bindings

I can't pick between those 3, any info or tips would be appreciated, even if some1 knows of other Bindings in the same price range i would love to hear your suggestions.


Thanks for help!

I have the Freestyles, 2009/10 models, that I paid 85$ (around 60 EUR) at the beginning of the season. They are not bad in any way, just not good. They flex way to much for my liking and are not much responsive. If you do any serious riding I would not consider those.

I have no knowledge of the other models you are looking at, so I cannot comment. Personally, if you are on a budget, I would look for previous year gear (2009/10) that you can probably find for 50% off. Even high quality but lightly used could do it.

I've been checking around and haven't been able to find a decent e-shop with last season equipment. And here in slovenia we don't have much of the sellers that offer old models.

Any kind of e-shop suggestions would do me well too

Cheers!

EDIT: Found this whne looking, but its not much :S

Out of the 3, by what I see in the description, I'd pick the Salomon. I do not know of any retailer in Europe, but there is a list of online stores here: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...retailers.html

Maybe some of them will ship to Slovenia...

Well most of the shops do ship to slovenia, tho i would prefer to keep it withing European Union, to avoid customs :P just adds additional charge for no good reason

Cheers!

Just be patient. It's slow around here. Also, there are definitely better options out there for bindings. Look into Flux bindings. They are very reputable.

Best budget binding is k2 indy, although you may be able to find k2 formulas for the same price right now
