Default Powder Bindings

Just got a brand new Palmer Carbon Circle 2 that I plan to use to hit some sweet Powder in Utah this season. I'm still searching for a good set of bindings to compliment the board. Any suggestions? This setup will be used soley for freeride powder days, I have another board I will use on park days. I was looking at a set of Burton c60's but those things are EXPENSIVE, and I've also heard a few negative reviews toward Burton bindings.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or personal preferences!

What do you like for bindings? Just about any binding will work for pow. I would get a binding that you find comfortable.

If you're going to dedicate a board strictly to powder, I'd get a board that's meant to be ridden in the post. A tapered board, a split tail, something along those lines. If it's just an all-around freeride board that's fine, but if you have something strictly for pow, might as well reduce leg burn as much as humanly possible.

I'm kind of looking for something with or similar to the "capstrap". I've heard good things about the response and feel that they give. As far as the freeride vs. pow thing, I'm not going to be waiting for a 2' dump or anything to use the board. But I will NOT be using it in the park, or on days with minimal snow.
