Bindings for Burton Blunt Wide?

Hey Guys,
I just ordered a 162 Burton Blunt Wide and am wondering what bindings i should look at. Will be spending a fair amount of time in the park but will also want to cruise around the mountain. I'm 202cm(6'7") and weigh 95kg(212lbs). Any help much appreciated!

Cheers,
Aaron

P.s. On a bit of a budget so nothing super expensive

if your looking for some burton bindings to go with that burton board I'd check out the missions. cartels are a solid choice too but maybe above the price range you're lookin at

What sort of binding are you after? Stiff, flexy, mellow, responsive?

Be warned that the Cartels do come with pretty high high-backs and more forward lean than other bindings so it may or may not be what you're after.

actually I goofed, I always confuse the blunt with the clash. I was thinkin you had yourself an all mountain board there but the blunt is defineatly more of a park board and for lots of folks the cartels may seem a bit too restrictive/stiff for a pure park setup. So ya, my bad, your riding style is key. For the price/quality factor I'd still say the missions are a solid choice, certainly for the park, with enough responsiveness to shred it everywhere else too.

That being said I only really know burton bindings, so take my advice for what it's worth

cheers
