Default Drake bindings?

I am going to need new bindings pretty soon so I was just wondering if someone could help me decide on which ones. I am looking at a few and they all seem good to me but need a second opinion. It is between drake czar, salomon relay's series, or burton freestyle. I have had the freestyles b4 but idk about the other two. can someone help me out and tell me if they are good or not. thanks

I say Drakes of those because I actually think they are starting to make good bindings again.

Well for that price range and what you say you ride, Union Cadet DLX's sound good. If I were to get Drakes I'd want to spend at least $200 to make sure that I got something good. If you can find some last year 390's, Forces, or Formulas that would be even better.

I would agree that five or so years ago Drakes were mediocre. But it seems like the company has gone through some restructuring and a Forum-esque makeover. Their team also has definitely gotten some big names as of late. Normally I could care less, Nima Jalai rides Artec and he's gosh darn sick. But with riders like DCP, Huot, Levac, Waite, and Matilla, they can't be as bad as they used to be.

That link didn't do anything but lead us to burton.com

I'm going to assume you meant freestyles. I really recommend not Burtons. I've become very unfond of unibody bindings because they severly limit your adjustability. You can't get your boot structuraly centered in a burton binding. You have that toe ramp to make the platform bigger but that doesn't center your boot in the binding. Bindings like Romes, Unions, and K2's you can adjust the heelcup and the toeramp, centering you boot in the binding.
