Question An opinion question...

So I'm a really new rider and still getting to learn the lingo of the equipment, and finally figured out about what size board I need. But I was wondering what y'alls opinion on bindings were. I learned on rental equipment that used flow bindings and I liked those because then I don't have to reset it each time, however, I've heard good stuff about other bindings. What do you all think, taking in mind that I'm a really new rider.

hmm well it really is going to depend on what kind of riding you are going to shoot for...freestyle/freeride/backcountry...then we'll go from there....but overall i believe that RIDE has the best ones for beginners

id have to disagree

also, i know a lot more people that support technine and union than ride.

how long have those companies been around
lets see, not that long

flows are very poorly designed, Santa Cruz owns them
cables allows stretch and the binding bases are huge the boot moves all over the place

who cares that they haven't been around that long....
length of how long people have been making bindings...does not matter. In that case we should look at Sims, lamar, morrow for the greatest bindings in the world and that's just a joke. rome is on there second year out and its already broken the top 5 for highest selling bindings on the market

they are selling because of the price point
Burton sells the most worldwide and will always do that, they will never ever be beat on that

now lets see, get some different boots and put them in the Rome bindings, put the same boots in the ride bindings, you will see a big difference in how wide they are

does not mean if u sell the most, u are the best

as for as i know morrow used to be a good binging manufacture because Burton old school bindings were braking because of the crap plastic they used
Sims to me were always junk
Lamar, they made the best boards like 10 years ago, but are the biggest POS now, big 5 sells them
