Bindings for a freerider

Hi
So I recently purchased a snowboard, my first one in fact, a Sapient PNB2 156 snowboard. I am a free rider and I cant go off ramps or do tricks.
Which type of bindings would you recommend me getting, I dont want anything too expensive and I dont want anything too cheap that would break on me... so i was thinking about 5150 2000 or rome arsenal which one should i choose, and if you have a better choice for me please let me know.

Thank You

I'm in the same boat as you...looking to freeride and was looking for a pair of decent bindings that aren't too expensive but still a quality product. From the research I did I ended up with a set of Rome Aresnals. You can get a brand new pair on Ebay for less than $100 bucks shipped and Rome's quality seems to be pretty good. I didn't read one review where anyone complained about the Aresenals being cheap or breaking on them. The Arsenals are a pretty stiff binding though, so I don't think they'd ever be a binding you could use to freestyle or do tricks/jumps on comfortably.

I don't have a whole lot of experience with 5150, but I hear more neutral to negative things about them than positive.

Get the Arsenals given the two choices. Rome is reknown for their customer service so should anything go wrong, you know you're covered. I can't say anything about 5150 other than it's more of an entry level/price point company.

i'm going to assume that a true freeride binding like a bent metal or arsenals or CADs are going to be way too much for you

something more like the new 2010 Ride RX would probably better suit you

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU
