phony_stark Never ridden them. I think you'll be fine with any choice you make. Especially since you're intermediate.

Go with which ones look cooler.

AcKlimek10 just found a pair of ride rodeo's from last year brand new for only $140 i have no idea what to get haha

AcKlimek10 either small or medium..

phony_stark I'm going to respectfully disagree with Matty.

If you go burton I say Cobrasharks are your best bet for the type of riding you do. Flexier baseplate, comfier straps, cheaper.

And, if you find cheap malavitas on ebay or something for the same price, get them.
What size do you wear?

matty19 I was at a shop event tonight, and while my own preference for bindings is moving to Unions (they're just best for what and how I ride), I was REALLY impressed by where Burton Missions are right now. Great pricepoint, and the best straps and buckles for the buck (if you don't like Union). Flux also has some REALLY nice binders out these days. Cushy straps. No pointless "tech".

phony_stark Well, I won't recommend the contact pros then. If you want canting and the "control" of the cobrasharks, some used vitas would do you well.

phony_stark Nah, burton is fullbed on the cobras. Srsly, I'd recommend, if it's possible, to try canting first to see if you like it. You may hate it.

Check for some used malavita reflexes if you want canting...great binding too.

And, if you liked the forces but though they were too stiff, try the contact pro. Great park binding that you can ride the mountain with. If you hate unions now, like a lot of people on here, forget I said that.
