Morrow Challenger bindings

I'm helping a buddy purchase new bindings. He is looking for the best deal out there and came across some Morrow Challenger bindings on eBay. He is a beginner and only been riding 10x or so. Any experience with these bindings?



Are there any other suggestions for a cheap beginner binding? He would like to spend under $40 shipped.

If it helps, he is 6'1 200# and rides beginner to intermediate downhill slopes (according to western PA standards). He is not going to be in the park.

Thanks!

If you want bindings that will last longer than a month, fork up a little more cash. Union Cadets are solid and cheap if you can find them locally. Saw some for $60 not too long ago.

I figured it was too cheap to be a good binding. I also noticed a lot of cheap Morrow boots out there and figured they were junk.

I'll pass along your strong opinion and try to get him to pony up. Any low-priced, half-decent options around $60?

Maybe we should look at used. I assume this is a good time of the year to find someone upgrading.

What do you look for when looking at a used binding?

you are in an unrealistic price range, seriously unrealistic....40? try and throw in a blowjob too that may help.

Well, I was looking at Morrow Invasions on clearance for $30 shipped. It was an ebay auction and they were being liquidated. I realize they are cheap but this is for a beginner who will probably board 3x a year at Seven Springs - a small western PA resort.

The Morrow Challengers mentioned above are under $50.
