I know NOTHING about Drake snowboards.
I rode a pair of Rdie Vxns for most of next season. They are a quality mid-range binding. Otherwise, if you are willing to spend a bit more, K2 Virtues and Rome Madisons are excellent bindings suitable for riders at any level.
I currently have the Salomon Ivys and love them! Good choice!
Some beginner boards that will suit your riding for a few years: K2 Luna, Rome Vinyl, Burton Lux, Capita Space Metal Fantasy, Gnu B-nice.
