I've had good experiences with K2 and Ride bindings, and a single bad (performance, not warranty) experience with Rome, but most people love Rome.

Before going into any specifics, what exactly are you looking for? Something that's for freeride or freestyle? Do you normally prefer something a little stiffer or more flexible? What board do you plan on matching this up to?

For now I have K2 Anagram board. Bindings for everything, but mostly for park and street. I like a little stiffer, I think that way it's easyer to control the board. And I forgot to say, I'm 6'2 230.

What are you breaking exactly, the base??? If so maybe a binding that has an aluminum base plate might be your best bet???

Firstable it was highback strap. Base still good, but screws are always untwisting, just after one way down the park. acctually I thought about aluminium base, I think it's best for me.

If your still a beginner, I'd say go with Burton Freestyle. You can also step up to Union Contact if you feel your skill level warrants it.

I think my level is above beginner, but thank you, and I still need advice.

I am close to your size and I rock the Ride Deltas. Aluminum construction FTW

Serious? The freestyles fall into Burtons' flimsy overpriced junk catagory. Don't get me wrong, I love burton bindings, but I would advice even a beginner to stay clear of these bindings. That being said I don't know where the OP said anything about being a beginner, and even if he was I'd hasard to guess his 230 pounds of heft would snap the base or highbacks on these in no time. As for the union contact I'd say it's probably not going to hold up as well to someone of his wieght as well as the Union Force

If your looking for something solid and responsive yet more in tune with street and park I'd second the opinion on the Ride delta's if you like the idea of an aluminum baseplate. Rome 390s are another good choice in this regard, SOLID baseplate with nice cushy interface underfoot.

Burton cartels could be a solid choice too, no aluminum baseplate but if anything goes wrong Burton probably has the best waranty and customer service in the biz. The Union Force as I mentioned could be another contender.
