So, I've been using Burton Missions and Cartels on my solid boards for the last few seasons and I'm thinking about trying something new...don't spend any time in the park.

For reference, I ride a 159 Unity Dominion most of the time and a 164 Never Summer Titan in the pow (may be looking to try something smaller with rocker at some point too). Both traditional camber. I've been riding and touring in Northwave Decade SLs for the last few seasons too.

Any thoughts on binders?

If you are riding Northwaves, go with Drake bindings. I just switched from Decades to Legends, think they have the same flex, and I like the Supersport bindings - just enough flex to cushion high-speed chunder, but great board feel and control.

i was on burton missions for about 150 days. switched to salomon chiefs sometime last season and have been liking them a lot as a replacement. i thought the missions were great. missions were mostly on a 154 burton twin, chiefs mostly on a 154 rome agent (cambered). both with salomon malamute boots

I've really been liking the Now IPO bindings. The pivot and dampers really make for a nice ride. Super solid heal cup fit too, but this kinda bothers some people who are not used to it. Well built bindings though.

I second that. I've ridden 390's for years and and love 'em. Finally could afford two sets and now it's 390's in the park and targas in the pow

I'm pretty pumped to get my burton malvita est's on a nug this winter. I've heard since the est's eliminate discs, some guys are rocking them without high backs or foot beds for a pretty sweet pow surf.

I haven't ridden them, but these will be my next set of bindings for my solid. I really like the looks of that design.
