upgrade binding or boots

Hi guys,
I am new to this forum
I have been snowboarding for a couple of seasons now but was strict on money when I started; so I have an entry level morrow boots and an avalanche binding and a $50 2nd hand snowboard (which I replaced with Rossignol experience 167 2011 a season later).
I have a little bit more money on my hands now but I dont know if i should upgrade my boots or my bindings (which one will increase the performance better)

board is stiff as hell (which I like)
binding is soft but gets the job done
boots has slight discomfort but you forget about it when you snowboard


Thanks for the suggestions

boots but only if you get them fitted properly.

Otherwise it really doesn't matter.

Yep, new boots for sure but if they don't fit right its a waste of money and time.

Bindings definitely make a difference (comfort, response, convenience) but your set up starts with the right set of boots. With the wrong boots, the best bindings and board won't matter.

Both

Get new boots from a previous yr model and used bindings in mint conditions. Same price as buying brand new boots alone.

win.

I'd say new boots. Unless your bindings are broken or something, you should get boots first.
