Which binding for haulin' and hard landings?

I think my bindings are the weak link in my setup. My boots are Burton Drivers (rock stiff) and my board is an Anthem (stiff). My Burton P1's are pretty darn flexible. I'm looking for something that gives me lightning quick edge to edge response for bombing, and great dampening for absorbing hard landings. Considering Ride, Burton CO2, Targas. Backcountry has like 900 CO2s in stock so some of them are bound to show up on Brociety I hope... The Ride CAD's footbed looks really interesting. I shoulda tried them during demo day but didn't get a chance to.
Oh the lighter the better

check out some rome arsenals, they have a nice padding for soaking up landings. also check out flow FRXs. they have a ton of padding on under the boot and are nice, light, and stiff.

your chances of finding c02s on brociety are going to be few and far...burton as well as other companies do have restrictions on what they will allow them to put up there and the idea of there top of the line binding being up there is not going to fly well. im not saying its impossible because i have seen vapors on whiskey but they will not allow it up too often if ever. im not sure if your familiar with the retail business but companies will not allow stores to sell there stuff for under retail unless a sale is approved usually, oakley is the strictest by far...

PM Snowolf (sp?). He uses the Arsenals and can answer any questions you may have on them.

You want something fairly responsive, yet still with a cushioned footbed. I'd say Rome Targa, Union Force, Ride Alpha or SPi.

The K2 Auto Evers looks very interesting. Any idea if the highbacks can be rotated on these things? I swear by highback rotation...
