Bindings for $100? Occasional intermediate all mtn rider

First post to this forum. I am an intermediate rider, who has been on 5 snowboarding trips. I have decided to buy my own equipment so I no longer have to rent anything. I ride in the east where the snow is mostly man made and the trails are groomed. I prefer a cambered board so I'm planning to buy a salomon ace snowboard. ~$200

Size medium/large ~size 8.5/9 boot

Any suggestions on "decent" bindings (last year's model or clearance) for around $100? I'm no expert and only take 1-2 trips a year, but I do realize i would prefer somewhat stiffer bindings since I rarely visit the terrain park.
Thanks for any advice!

I would recommend these if you can get last years models (this years would be around $130 to $170)

Burton Custom
Ride LX - $94.95

Both are good intermediate bindings that suit most people, but of course there are higher and lower end bindings

I would not recommend the LX bindings. I bought my GF the LXH bindings for her first year. They will be fine for her to learn with, but frankly, I am not impressed with the bindings. If I were you I would either go with the burtons or spend a little bit more money and make sure you get bindings with metal ratchets. The LX bindings just seem cheaply made.

I would definitely agree the LX isn't the best thing out there but for a lot of people that don't go often it certainly work. Ride also made some big changes this year with their bindings so no more shitty ratchets on them! They now all have the ratchet system that were on the Capo. So for last years LX you get the older system and the new ones have a much better ratchet.

Yeah, the LX's are a piece of shit. If you're trying to get bindings for $100, gently used is probably your best bet.

Last year's K2 Formula/Uprise. Maybe Rome 390 boss? I picked up a pair for $114.

Not sure the bosses are as stiff as you want them though

This ^, I would check out geartrade for some nice used bindings. I use Ride bindings myself but only their higher end stuff.

If you're a size medium I'd pick up the TT30s posted here if I were you...
