Im 6'0 215lbs I have a 2013 GNU Riders Choice 162w and 2013 Ride Triad spdl any info or suggestions would be helpful....Thanx
Isn't the Riders Choice a mid to stiff board? I was reading the thread and then it got confrontational, but staying on topic, I agree the Targas are going to be too much for a park binding.
I claim myself to be an allmtn freestyle rider. I think I tried some Burton P1 back in 2005 and that was a stiff binding. I didn't like it in the park as it did not allow any mistakes. If the Targas are one of the stiffer bindings in the Rome line up, I wouldn't suggest them. Basically what Leo said.
I like the suggestions from Alkasqualik. I tried some Contact Pros and enjoyed them for everything...all-mtn and park. If I wanted more response, I would just add some fwd lean. I also tried Forces about 2 yrs ago. Didn't have an issue with them and agree about comparing them to Cartels. I've ridden both.
