Which of these 3 bindings would you recommend?

All are 50% off and I think I'm going to order some tomorrow.
I have size 13 (all are available in L).
Mostly just shred the mountains, I don't spend a lot of time in the park, but will on occasions.
I'd be putting them on a Salomon Special, and then down the road hopefully a Legacy-R by NS.

I like the adjustability of these, with the ability to expand the heal and two area.

Ride SPI 09

I was checking these out today, and I do like these a lot. Especially the green ones I was checking these out today at a local shop.

Ride CAD bindings 09 (these are $45 more than the rest)

If these are worth it I'll happily pay the extra $45. Only reason I am looking at these is because they are Ride's higher end.

Sorry, I lied, it's 4 bindings

Given that is sounds like your a freerider more than anything else, get the SPIs. IMO, the CAD is not worth the extra dollars. The Deltas are more targeted for freestyle and park. The Flux seems to be similar to the Rome Targas - no experience with them, but Flux is quickly building a rep for themselves.

Sweet. Thanks for the feedback. Definitely liking the SPIs. I had my hand on my wallet at the store today, but decided to wait (which I'm very happy for cus I almost bought them for $220).
The Flux are tempting too, but I prefer them in the brown, and they only have them in that wierd pink, so I think that might make my decision.

I'd recomend the delta mvmnt dfc's because I have them and love them. Perfect mix of park and all mountain bindings (even though they say they are park specific) all of the aspects of these bindings I love if you have any specific questions I can most likely answer them

SPI. I have them and love them. Mine are '08s though. Not sure what changes were made in the '09s.

Hmm. Just doing some more reading... With size 13 boots, do I need XL, or will L suffice. Based on the sizing charts, it says that I need XL. Pretty sure I am riding L right now.

Is this accurate? or will L be ok? If not this might narrow it down.

I've had SPI's on my last two boards and love them. Stiff, responsive with taller high backs for freeriding. I was able to get them nicely dialed in so no hot spots and the convertible toe cap stays in place on 3 different pairs of boots. Had some minor issues with the ratchets on my old ones, but my 08/09's don't have any problems. I'd buy them again (and after my old board got swiped, I did). Ride's customer service is great as well.

Buysnow.com has my '09 antique Black SPI's on for $125

I don't have any experience with the others on your list so I can't offer a comparison opinion, but I don't think you'd be unhappy with the SPI's at all.

I have the Ride NRC's in XL and I am a size 12. I definitely recommend ride bindings but I do think you have to go with XL. ALso, I think the CAD's may be a little much for you. THey are super stiff and very high end so you could probably save the money and still get a great binding. SPI if you want a stiffer freeride oriented binding and the Delta if you want a lighter, more forgiving one.

Ok... The SPI's I can't get in the size I need, so those are out despite being the most recommended ones...
So that leaves the Delta's or, these just dropped to the same price and are most expansive binders, so they are the other option for the same price.
