|dashock333||Oh well, I got the freestyles now. Are the Lx's better? If they are really that much better, I could probably exchange the freestyles for Lx's.|

|con3593||I would have gone with arsenals or 390's, don't be stingy with your bindings|

|Minger||I'm not exactly hsure how good they would be. Personally, from what I've heard about the Burton Freestyles, I would at least spend an extra 10-15 or so and get the Ride LX or EX. Its one of the most important parts of your setup.|

|dashock333||I went with the burton freestyles. Rome 390's look like great bindings, but the freestyles were half the price.|

well with end of season sale, you might be able to find some cheap boots. but i am not sure about 60 bucks...
i paid like 120 for my burton boots 2 years ago, but that was in the middle of season.

How much should I expect to pay for good boots and bindings? Can I get package deals on these items? I saw some vans mantra boots for $60 which caught my attention and seem like good boots.
Bindings: I found some rather cheap rides and burtons:
Burton freestyle - $55
Ride LX - $60
What do ya think?

|Mr. Right||If you buy Burton boots don't go cheap. I had a pair of Ions that lasted 3 hard years for me before the speedlace system started to give way. At the end of last season I bought some Burton Rulers and the speed lace system starting pulling apart the first time I tightened them. Within 25 days of riding the boots were completely shot and they will be returned to Dogfunk in favor of a pair of Salomons.|

|Gustov||i don't really know about liquid stuff, but i don't think they are of the highest quality. i have a friend who has liquid stuff, and he basically says it's crap. i can suggest some ride bindings though. EX or RX are good all mountain bindings that aren't that expensive. i have EXs and i can only say good things about em.|

|killclimbz||On the boot front. Some boot manufacturers are better than others. Burton, Vans, Salomon, and Nitro in my experience make boots that hold up. Now some I don't like for various reasons, but all these companies make boots that hold up. I have had issues with DC and so have lots of others, 32 is pretty much the shoddiest construction of the bunch. You'll have to do a little research on the quality of the products you are interested in but it's well worth your time. Believe me when I say this. Still waiting on my boots from DC dammit!|

I am definately gonna get boots. I Only went snowboarding a few times last year and didn't feel like spending any money on them. But I am going a lot more this year and it is gonna be a must to have them. I'll prolly visit some local shops and maybe dick's sporting goods to see what they have.
About the bindings, I have never used any other bindings than my liquid's. Are liquid's considered good bindings? I think they are made by ride, which is a good name.
