Default Bindings; a few choices...

I'm looking for some new binding and I've narrowed my search down to 3 choices:

The Drake CZAR

The Elan Neon

The Ride SPi

Any advice on these bindings?

If you're going to be riding all mountain, the Ride SPi is perfect for you. If you're going to be in the park alot, u should go with the Drake CZAR.

Well, they're going to be mounted on an Apo Selekta, wich is essentialy a pure park board. But I will be riding slopes just as often as the park since most owners say it's also perfect for having some fun on the slopes. So I guess I should go for the all mountain ride's for a good balance?

Yeah. You can ride all mountain with the Drakes, but compared to the Rides they aren't going to be as responsive. The other thing that the Rides have going for them are the fact that they have toe caps and this will make a difference in your riding.

I used to have the Ride SPIs, they are very responsive but also very rigid. Definitely an all mountain binding, but high quality with the gel cap sole and revolver ratchets.

Important note: all my previous riding experiences have been with rented stuff, so most likely it'll be heaven either way.
But I guess it 'll be the SPi's then.

Thanks a bunch!
