Sounds like you are pretty focused on the rodeo, you should probably get a pair of those. If there's something about the rodeos you like, but don't want a pair, you should tell us what you like about them. Otherwise stop referencing the rodeos
A binding that is similar to the Pickle in terms of flex. I didn't realize Ride bindings were all aluminum, so I'll stay away from that. A binding of good quality and durability; I need it to last me 2-3 seasons. My budget is around $150.
