Looking for stiff bindings that don't break the bank

I'm looking for bindings for a big mountain board. I've got burton driver x boots and am looking for some stiff bindings to go with it all. Why are all of the stiff bindings more expensive? Any suggestions?

Flux TT 30's good binding not to expensive.
Union Flite's

What do you consider expensive, $200 is middle of the road.

you can give Ride SPI's a look, from reviews they seen to be pretty stiff. They're discontinued but on sale at ChristySports for $115 with free shipping.

For Stiff look at Ride Capo's, Rome Targa's, Flux SF45's, K2 Evers, Flow NXT-FRX, or Raiden Machines.

Stiffer is more expensive cause to do that and keep weight down or the same you have to use higher end materials

The Rome Arsenal is a great stiff binding without breaking the bank.

Ignore whoever said Flux TT30 it's not stiff. Flux in general are pretty flexy. The SF45 is ok though. Nivek knows what he's talking about - all great suggestions. Same with the others who suggested the Arsenal - great binding. The Salomon Caliber and Burton Malavita are additional options.
