Freestyle binding buying advice

I'm looking to buy some freestyle bindings. I wanted to know the good ones. I'm looking to spend less than $300. Any advice?

What's more important for better performance.... nice freestyle bindings or nice freestyle boots?

Superb fitting boots, and Rome 390's will give you the best performance. Try on as many boots as possible. Select the ones that fit you best, then pick the pair that has the features that you want. For freestyle, you want some moderately flexable boots, but if no flexable boots fit you comfortably, then don't force yourself to wear them. You can't get much better than the Rome 390's for bindings. It seems to be the most popular binding on these forums too.

Thanks Bagels. I was considering the rome 390's but I got the burton cartel est instead. I hope they are pretty comparable.

They should ride nice as long as you have a Burton board with ics. I have ridden the cartels before. They ride like nice bindings, but I am not particularly fond of them. A lot of people swear by them.

ICS is the channel you see on some Burton boards for use with EST bindings.
