Default Bindings: Rome Strut?

Hey guys!

My Rome Vinyl came in today and I'm really psyched to take it out on the mountain. Unfortunately, I have nothing to attach my boots to it (I don't think duct tape or crazy glue will work too well ). Does anyone know anything about the Rome Strut bindings? I'm considering them and would love some input on this

Thanks for your help!

stiffer than the madisons, better for freeriding than park. rome makes quality stuff though, congrats on the board

thanks

do you know how much stiffer they are? I doubt I will be doing much park...

or would it be better to get Ride bindings?

get the k2 virtue. I rode a pair of ride vxns last year, and wanted to upgrade them this year. I first wanted to get the ride dvas, then read stuff about the crappy rachets on last years, then i was looking into rome but the madisons seemed too soft for me and the struts too stiff. I then hears good stuff about the guys k2 formula and had a look at the girls version the virtue. At first i was worried they would be too soft but the k2 site made them seem like a really good all-around binding. For a high-end binding their not too expensive so i went for it. They have a ton of nice features like a hinge strap and this pop-up disk cover. The straps are really comfortable and the toe strap holds better than my rides did. After riding them last weekend, i can oficially say im in love. They were just as, if not more responsive than my old rides, but were more flexible laterally. This made for a smooth responsive ride down the hill but also made butters much easier. They have the perfect mix for all-mountain riding, and are so comfy they haped get rid of my foot pain. k2 virtues>rides IMO.

my wife has the struts and really likes them. great adjustability and great response. pretty much everything you'd want in a freeride binding.
