Arsenals are a stiff freeride binding.

EX's ratchets suck ass.

The Rides are good value and will hold up, there have been some issues with their ratchets in the past though, not sure about this year... The Arsenal's ok, but see if you can Find a pair Union Cadet DLX's for a good deal. If you can those are the way to go for you

i had a pair of ride ex last year and went to the mountain every weekend. i went hard as i could in the park and by the end of the year the ride ex's kept coming loose. i took it many shops and they said it couldnt be fixed. i ended up buying a pair of burton cartels and though they are pricy they work very very good. if i were you i would go with rome or burton.

i just bought the ex's tried them out for the first time yesterday and i was very happy with them. well padded, comfy. the only bad thing about them is that the rachets stick a little bit when getting them off. not a big deal though

I used Arsenals as a beginner and I haven't found a reason to buy anything else.
