Ride SPi Bindings vs Burton C60s

Hi guys, I've been looking at these two bindings. The price difference between the two are around $120. I can find the 2009 Ride SPi Bindings for $110 online while the Burton C60s are running around $230.

These would be mounted on a 158 2009 Ride Prophet board. I don't do any park at all so I'm not worried about that aspect of the binding. Just free riding with an occasional jump or two if they come up on the slopes.

Is the C60 worth the price difference?

Are these two bindings even comparable between the two brands? I wasn't sure if the Ride SPi was the Ride equivalent to the Burton C60.

I'm just looking for a GREAT free ride binding.

Thanks, looks like if my call to Burton goes like I'm thinking it is tomorrow (re: the Sobe Burton Custom board), I'll just pay that eBay seller the cost for him to re-list that board and spend the coin on the SPi bindings instead

Haha first thing I did is lose the webbed toe straps... toe straps don't work well IMO.
