stay away from cheapo brands like 5150, Lamar, M3, etc. you can get better boards with better tech for the same price if you go with last year's stuff. even if you went with this year's stuff, brands like Rome, CAPiTA, K2, Ride, Burton, etc. will have some well-priced park boards that will be worth way more than the $50 you saved on that 5150.
i hear good things about the Recon. stick with that if you wanna stay in that price range.
for bindings you can't really go wrong with Rome. the Arsenals and 390's are some great bindings. Union also makes good bindings with the Force and Contacts. Burton's Cartels and Triads are great... just stay away from the Customs.
