Unfortunately these would be too big for my boot size. Im seriously considering some Burton Custom bindings (2011/2012 model) for roughly $100. Sounds like they are a decent binding for my price range. Burton quality with cheapo price

I really APPRECIATE all the responses! Quick responses I might add. Hopefully somebody else in my situation will find this thread useful as well.

evo.com has the Rome 390 boss'es for $118 right now. Also the Flow M-9's for $118. Never rode with either but a lot of people seem to like the 390's.

Nice pickup.

Can I ask where you ride/live? If you're near Boston, they're having their annual Ski and Snowboard Expo at the convention center starting today and going through this weekend.

Bit of a yuppy scene but its fun and you can pickup lots of discounted gear.

They might be a little stiffer than what you're looking for, but I just picked up a pair of '12 Rome Targas from shoreline of tahoe for 130. They still have s/m and l/xl

I learned to snowboard while living in west nc - if you go a lot you can definitely learn a lot there. No steeps or pow, but you can get pretty fast on some ice.

the ace is $157 w/ free shipping at evo, just noticed.

Looks like a great first setup!!

Yeah I'm to the point where i am pretty fast and very confident. This will be my 5th week long trip there. What's your/y'alls opinion on the salomon ace vs the rossignol taipan? I found both for $200 or less online right now. The taipan seems like a higher quality board but it is a hybrid (rocker-camber-rocker). I definitely don't want to lose speed, stability, or edge hold at high speed by going with a hybrid. But thegoodride.com gives the taipan great a review all over and scored better in almost every way than the salomon. I doubt I would be disappointed with either.
