My first bindings

Ive decided on my board which is a Flow Infinite, but now I need to know what bindings I should get. I only have like 100-150 bucks to spend on bindings so any help would be greatly appreciated.

get the union DLX's (around 120/130) or for an extra 50 or so grab the Union forces. best bindings out.

2011 K2 Formula's are great for that if you're on a budget.

If 2012, Indy's.

Thanks for all the advice guys, and my boot size is 10.5-11.
I think I'm gonna go with the Union DLX's since I hear so many good things about them. I was thinking about going with the Burton Freestyles, but if I'm gonna spend $300 on a board then I mine as well put a little extra money into my bindings.

IF you are putting a little extra money in the bindings, then you should go with the Flux TT30s. It will be a more comfortable fit than the Unions and still able to withstand pressure and keep you in control. Just another option...

Where are you hearing all these good things about DLX's? EasyLoungin maybe?

K2 Indy's over those any day of the year. All day. They're just better. Better ratchets, better dampening, better straps, better highback, better toe ramp adjustment...

Compared to? Best binding out to whom?

NickShake, if you have the chance, go to a shop and bring your boots to check the fit with bindings. If you can check the Unions out this way beforehand, it would be highly recommended because their toe straps are known to have fitment issues.
