Exclamation recommendations for binding

Whats up everyone?
My first post here, need some help choosing between a few bindings. I'm a beginner, and recently just got my first board (omatic boron) delivered. I'm looking for a freeride binding, but soft enough to handle small hits off rollers and what not. My price range is anything under 150. I was looking at these:
-Rome Arsenal
-K2 Auto
-Bent Metal Step In

What would you recommend? Thanks!!

I vote Rome Arsenal. Great binding, super responsive and cap strap that will mask your toe instead of a pre-formed one.

It is slightly on the heavier side, but it'll handle anything you charge down.

I have the arsenals, they are very stiff and responsive. I don't think I would want these if I were a beginner, as they would probably be too stiff. They are not comfortable for landing jumps either. They are excellent for high speed, precise control though.

If you want a responsive binding that is soft enough to land jumps, I hear the Targas are great. Maybe do a search for a review on them, or somebody who has used them might be able to comment...

hmm I didnt even kno the targas was a stiffer binding, i always thought it was a softer binding.. cool I will def look into them. How about the targas and arsenals compared to ride bindings, like spi's or rx's?

I picked up the K2 Formula's few weeks ago, I only got a chance to take them out once, but I like them alot. Good support and easy on easy off.

Ride Deltas, Betas and RX's can be all be had in the range right now. Another option would be Rome 390's if you can find some.

aren't the formulas, 390's, and deltas more of a freestyle binding? I feel like i would need something more responsive because I dont plan on hitting the park until I'm a lot better. Right now im leaning towards the ride rx or spi's, the betas look sick too. I was chatting with a rep from Dogfunk.com and he said to go with the Burton Cartel's. How are these compared to the ones I mentioned?

You should check out union force bindings. They are good. I have road the contacts and they have to much flex for you if you are not going to hit the park to much. Look at the forces at sierrasnowboard.com they are only 99 dollars. A good deal if you think about it. You can find review at of a lot of bindings at shayboarder.com. Hope this helps
