Burton Co2's, your take?

So I have the chance to get a pair of regular (non-EST) Burton Co2's(2009 model) for 230$ (CAD) at my local shop. What is your take on these? From what I've heard from friends, they are pretty darn nice bindings. I've tried them once, they performed incredibly. Are there any other better bindings out there for the price? I need something stiff, and responsive. The board I'm using is a Never Summer Premier F1-R, so like I said, I need something stiff to compliment it.

Thanks in advance.

Amazing bindings. Go for them, if you don't hook me up with your local shop's number so I can see if they will send them out to me.

Only other reccomendation would be the ride cad's.

That's a hell of a lot of money....

I'm sure something in the Ride, Rome, or Union lineup will be perfect for you and not cost you that kind of money.

I personally have Ride NRc's but havn't been able to use em yet. Burton can make some sick bindings, but some come with a big price tag as well.

If you've got big pockets though, I guess it doesnt matter...

Overpriced at 230$? I find that relatively cheap for a good pair of bindings. Most of the cheaper bindings (price-wise, not quality-wise) I've tried didn't suit me. Anyways, I asked what exactly would be better. There may be better out there, but can you name something? I usually like a little precision in what one says.

I'm not sure what the CAD difference is...

But these are 2008/2009 bindings right? You can def find a sick pair of bindings for less then that.

I got my 2008/2009 Ride NRc's for $110 and they retail at $250.... Just because they're now considered last seasons gear.

The difference in US dollars would be about 210-215$ I'd say. Once again, the Canadian Dollar is almost at par with the US dollar. Yay! Time to go buy! Back to the subject, I've yet to find something that is as stiff as the Co2's... I'm not very familiar with bindings of other brands apart from Burton, Atomic, and Flux.

well if you are getting last years models, they are still over priced. 2010 Models are going for $370 USD. 230 is better then 370 though. I would personally go with Union Forces ($200 Union Force), Rome 390s ($210 390s), K2 Auto ($250 k2 auto), Union Force MC ($399 Force mc)

If i were shopping for new bindings, i would get one of these.

Yeah, the 2010 Ride SPI's are $229.

Buysnow.com has the '09 CO2's for $209....probably less in a while
