Newb binding help

Whats up, i just purchased this board Gnu Carbon Credit BTX Series Snowboard - Wide from Backcountry.com, and i need help on a good set of bindings " under 200 bux ". I have never snowboarded before, and I only plan on carving " when i get to that level", I will never hit the park.. Im a newb, trying to get a sweet set up to learn on, and to still use after i have learned how to ride well enough to carve around the mountain. Thanks guys

Thats a sweet board to learn on you'll have a blast on that. I learned on burton customs still have the board and i mess around on it every once and awhile. The customs this year are pretty dope lookin too. Also check out the rome 390 bosses they are soft enough to learn on and will be something you could keep and throw on another board if you decide to get one later. The 390s are about $180 on Bergs ski and snowboard shop (ive bought from there and they are legit), the customs you can find for about $115 if you google it. Good luck

Totally depends on whether you're looking to buy now and take advantage of offseason sales or you're planning on waiting for next year's gear to get out. There are lots of deals out there this time of year, but selection will be limited.

I wanting to buy now during these sales, all i have left to buy is bindings and boots, so once those are done, i will be SET !! I was looking @ the flow m9's , would they be good for non park action ? just learning and riding ? I want a pair of bindings that will get me through the learning process, but also be good enough to keep me boarding. i want something responsive, good quality, you know what i mean ?
