Default can i salvage my bindings?

i'm looking at getting a new board. after reading a ton of reviews, i'm leaning towards the 2010 arbor element. my old bindings are '07 ride lx. i know they're not the best. but i'm hoping to put all my money into the board this year and get new bindings and boots next year when i have more to spend.

Go for it I plan on doing the same, although my bindings aren't that old. You can pick up some 2010 bindings cheap at the end of the season!

it was the title of the thread. i was wondering if they're good enough to keep using for a season. or if they're complete crap and would defeat the purpose of getting a new board.

As long as they are compatible I don't see why you can't do it.

That's really up to you, if you think they will last go for it.

So not so much 'salvage' as 'move to a new board', huh?

Do they hold your boot? Then they're good enough.

Bjebus Munky, it's the new year, be semi-somewhat nice to the noob, lol.

OP, the answer is yes, you can move/salvage your bindings.

in moving them to a new board, i would be salvaging them from my old. are you always this charming? or is it just my lucky day?

thanks for the other replies is there any way to know if they're compatible before i buy my board? if i need new bindings, i can probably get a package price buying them together. but i would really rather wait.
