Default I need new bindings and I'm buying them tomorrow!

So, it's time to get bindings for my Sherlock that may or may not stay, so I just need an all-around good pair of bindings. There's a big labor day sale tomorrow and it's where I'm buying, and they only carry Burton, Flow, Ride, K2, Rossignol, etc. (I think a few more but stick to those to be safe.) They're overstocked on Flow, so I'm not sure if I should try step-ins or wait.

Anyway, I'm probably just going to get a pair of Cartels or Malavitas, but is there anything else that would go well? I don't think you need this info, but I'm 5' 8" and 160 lbs.

Thanks so much! Sorry about the rushed thread!

What do you like to ride? That will definitly help you decide. I have never tried Burton bindings so cant help you there.

Id say Malavitas.

If you want to try the back door grab some NX2 SE's. They'll match great with the Sherlock.

Okay. I like riding just about everything, I do like 30% park, 40% groomers, 20% trees (although I like them ALOT, just I only get out to places with good tree runs a few times a season) and 10% powder (New England doesn't get a lot and I'm in school when it's there.)

If you're considering moving on from the Sherlock, look at the non-est bindings. You can always run an adaptor on est bindings, but you can't run est bindings on a nonchannel board.

Okay, so I went out to the sale (it's a local hill having a labor day weekend sale,) and I looked around, but they didn't have the right bindings in the right sizes, and I can find the same bindings for cheaper elsewhere.

Anyway, in the meantime, I'm basically deciding between Cartels and NXT-AT's. I really want to try the Flows, but I'm not sure if I should or not. And I'm buying last year stuff around $140, so no NX2's. I can also get Fluxes for pretty cheap too, (which ones are best for me?) So I'll consider those.

My final three are Burton Cartels, Flow NXT-AT's, and Flux (TT30 or RK30 or something like that? Not sure which one)

Which is the best for my riding?

Where did you get them? And what do you recommend for my riding style?

google "2012 rome 390 boss" and a bunch of results under $140 come up. and if your riding 30%park 40groomers and trees then they should work good.
