$199 is a lot of money for Burton Stilettos. Stilettos were my first bindings and I hated them. I now have Ride Vxns and they are far better. In fact, there are lots of better bindings out there for comparable prices. Can you order from Sierrasnowboards.com in Canada? If so, there are tons of last years' bindings on sale for 50-70% off.
