Default burton shrinkage and rome targa's

hey, i currently have 9.5 burton ruler's and looking to get new rome targa's. anyone know which size binding i should get? i'm right in the grey area between s/m and m/xl. burton also says that the footprint on these boots is smaller so not really sure where i fall in.

Get the L/XL size.

I have Rulers (size 10) and Targas (l/XL). there is much more play with the boot in the Targas side to side than there was on my old Burton Missions. The size 9 may work with the s/m size, but you'll probabbly be maxing out all the adjustments, and I don't know how well that will work. Also, the toe strap cap digs into the corner of my toe instead of wrapping around it. This might be solved with further adjustment, but maybe not. I'm still a little undecided on how I feel about the Targas. I feel like I had more response from my Missions, but I'm also riding a new board too, so between the new board and bindings there's a lot to get used to.

I have DC Judges in a 9.5 and I went with a L/XL Targa. Just used them today and I'm very happy w/ the set up...

according to rome's website you can get away with a sm/m binding with 9.5. I would say if you could return them, or don't need it immediately get the sm/m, then if they don't fit return them. if your burton boot is like mine, they're not that bulky.

I'm pretty much 99% freeride at this time. I plan on trying out the park near the end of the season...

The judges for me are quite comfy. I have last years model, so it's only got the one Boa and the little pump on the side. I'm really lazy and hate doing the laces, that's why I went with them.

S/M might be pushing it, but they may work with a small footprint. I'm in a 7.5/8 boot and I pretty much have the adjustments maxed out. I think there was a thread on here about someone having difficulty strapping into the S/M with a 9.5 boot. I think most binding companies are optimistic when they list the max size.

Not to state the obvious, but why not just take your boots in to the shop and try them on?
