Default Binding Recommendation

I have an Arbor A-Frame that I bought for this season.
I have white Burton Mission biding on it, but it just doesnt feel stiff.
The boots are Vans fargo which is fairly stiff.
I'm gonna buy new set of bindings but don't know which ones to get.
I want to stay with white bidings and want to stay under $300.

I do strictly freeride on east coast slopes; NO park.

Ride Betas buddy! Great value, nice and simple, stiff as hell. I have them on my Yukon 172, and El Grande 171, and I only freeride too. Sometimes less is more. These are functional because they're simple.

FS's are completely the wrong bindings for what he wants, but if you dont do much extremely deep powder then the flow NXT FRX's wouldbe perfect

agreed, the m11 would also work for you its a stiff binding but not as stiff as the frx if you want something a little more versatile

Beta's? Have you ever even tried the SPi's? They are significantly stiffer than the betas. I would equate the beta's to a Rome Targa as far as stiffness is concerned.

Haven't tried the spi's. Do they use the same chassis? If so, how are they stiffer?

No, they use a stiffer heavier chassis, stiffer highbacks, and much stiffer ankle straps
