Default picking out my first bindings are these ok?

hey guys decided to switch over to snowboarding and am trying to get my setup sorted out. i will be doing only mountain runs on this until i get to intermediate level then may venture into the park.

the bindings im looking at are the flow flight 2's my buddy has them and has used them for 2 years and says there great. the other ones i really like are the flow nxt-at.

between these two which would be a better binding to use for a all mountain beginning rider? if there are any brands you think i would be better suited to plz post them. looking at spending up to 300 on bindings if i have to.

oh and there going on a 2011 skunk ape 165 wide c2btx im getting it on weds haha.

thanks for any help

I'd stay away from everything below Trilogy's. For you, if you're riding a 165w I'm guessin your a little on the bigger size of the human race, I wouldn't go below AT's. Everything else is gonna feel too soft.

I have the flite 2 bindings. 2 pairs actually. I would go with nxt at if you have the desire to spend the money. The flite are great but cheaper quality that the at.... might as well start out with the higher end stuff.
