Need bindings - relatively new

I'm looking for all-mountain bindings (pretty much all freeride, no freestyle). I'm a beginner but progressing quickly and want intermediate bindings I can use for a few years.

Any suggestions? I really want to keep it at $150 or less, so getting a previous year's model on clearance would be great. It's usually easy to find things on sale so $200 might be a better limit.

The suggestions I go so far are Rome Arsenals and K2 Formulas.

Also, I have Salomon 11.5 wide Synapse boots, which say "11-11.5 US, 11 UK, 29 cm". If I go with K2 bindings, the cutoff for L/XL is 11/11.5. Based on the other measurements (UK,Mondo,Euro), I think the boot is closer to 11.5. Would I go with L or XL?

Salomon bindings might be nice if they fit my boot better.

If you ride mountain more than park, I second the Rome Arsenals. I have them and I have found no reason to consider any other binding thus far.

Apparently the Arsenals have a very low highback that's very stiff, but they seem to be very popular...

You really won't be disappointed in them. I don't think I'll buy new bindings until these crumble to dust.

I chose Burton Cartels, I had some shit freestyles(begin of beginner) and if you want to pony up 220, or less for last year's model, they're great.
Nice and stiff and even though only used them 9/10 times, the rotating highback, which puts the high in highback, is great for freeriding.

Just ordered a 2007-2008 pair

Apparently I recently missed getting them from Sierra at $80... the next cheapest place online was $120.
