What bindings to get??

Im looking to buy some new bindings for my Sierra Stunt. I dont want to spend more than $200. I found a discount of gnu parks for $160 which i am most likely going to get. Im also considering ride rodeos, rome mobs, and rome s90's. Let me know your opinions, thanks.

Dont buy the Gnu's. Not good. They feel like 3 year old Rides.

The Rodeos or Missions are your best options.

Why not just scoop a pair of Union Flites? $159.99 Lifetime warranty on the baseplate and heelcup. Fully padded gas pedal, super easy to adjust.

Easy to adjust? You have to use a screw driver on everything except the ankle strap. And I'm pretty sure every single company has a lifetime warranty on the baseplate. Union is also the only ones making a point to say heelcup too. Everyone else just counts that as par of the baseplate. And fully padded gas pedal? Who isn't doing that?

If you wanna talk warranty Salomon does lifetime on the highbacks as well as the baseplate and increases the rest of the warranty to two years if they're paired with Salomon boots.

Pretty fucking good skis too.

Next you'll tell me all about how K2 makes skis too.

Volcom is owned by Prada. Vans is under the same umbrella as The North Face. Ride is owned by K2 who makes skis...

Do you really think they aren't a completely seperate division from the ski side?

Salomon was one of the very first companies to come up with a unique sidecut to compensate for rocker washout.

Your for snowboarders by snowboarders high horse is over there, as in, not here. Go away, you're out of your league.

Salomon makes good skis, Union makes sucky bindings.

Didnt have the greatest experience with Unions at all and I'm done with them. You'd think a bindings exclusive company would have done a better effort at pioneering binding technology or at least improving them. My wife rides union bindings and she cusses them out every single time.

You'll then hear in the next few posts from Union fanboys how great Union bindings are, blind fools.
