ROME binding arent bad, but ive never liked RIDE's mounting discs and never liked their fit.
I'd really check into FLUX, UNION, and yes...BURTON. you wont here much good about burton here cause this forum is very PRO-ROME. I had cartels for four years, and love them. i could take them deep but they still had enough give for my k2 www. I'll throw out another not so popular brand for you too, FLOW. they've fixed almost all the problems that people will give as reasons why they SUCK and if you like them and get them dialed, they're awesome.
whatever you choose, bring your boots and board to the shop you buy at, and ask if you can mount the binding on your board before you decide, it will let you make sure your boots fit and kinda press around and the ground and you'll get a feel of how the binding interact with the board.
Go ahead, drink that kool-aid.
