Arrow new bindings

I currently have liquid lq 1500 bindings and I'm getting a new board. Should I get new bindings too? If so, what should I get? Moneys kinda tight right now so keep that in mind for suggestions. Thanks.

it's a good idea to get new binding, but only if you can afford them .

What type of riding do you do?

me

I wear a size 12 shoe, though I've never had actual snowboard boots so I don't know what size boot I take(I used my huntin boots because they fit, ). I ride mostly groomers and diamonds, a little park once every trip. I usually just carve and fly down the slopes with friends.

you should definitely go buy some snowboard boots. they're the most important part of the setup. brand doesn't matter really, just go to a shop and try a bunch on and see which ones are comfortable.

boots

I am definately gonna get boots. I Only went snowboarding a few times last year and didn't feel like spending any money on them. But I am going a lot more this year and it is gonna be a must to have them. I'll prolly visit some local shops and maybe dick's sporting goods to see what they have.

About the bindings, I have never used any other bindings than my liquid's. Are liquid's considered good bindings? I think they are made by ride, which is a good name.

On the boot front. Some boot manufacturers are better than others. Burton, Vans, Salomon, and Nitro in my experience make boots that hold up. Now some I don't like for various reasons, but all these companies make boots that hold up. I have had issues with DC and so have lots of others, 32 is pretty much the shoddiest construction of the bunch. You'll have to do a little research on the quality of the products you are interested in but it's well worth your time. Believe me when I say this. Still waiting on my boots from DC dammit!

i don't really know about liquid stuff, but i don't think they are of the highest quality. i have a friend who has liquid stuff, and he basically says it's crap. i can suggest some ride bindings though. EX or RX are good all mountain bindings that aren't that expensive. i have EXs and i can only say good things about em.

If you buy Burton boots don't go cheap. I had a pair of Ions that lasted 3 hard years for me before the speedlace system started to give way. At the end of last season I bought some Burton Rulers and the speed lace system starting pulling apart the first time I tightened them. Within 25 days of riding the boots were completely shot and they will be returned to Dogfunk in favor of a pair of Salomons.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?

How much should I expect to pay for good boots and bindings? Can I get package deals on these items? I saw some vans mantra boots for $60 which caught my attention and seem like good boots.

Bindings: I found some rather cheap rides and burtons:
Burton freestyle - $55
Ride LX - $60
What do ya think?
