What do you think of rome or union bindings?

I am looking for new bindings and am right now looking at either rome or union bindings, but I am up for other sugestions. I'm looking for a good park binding for an intermediate rider who mostly rides boxes and rails. I am really light, only 75 lbs, i'm not sure if that matters at all.

At that weight you might find 390s to be too stiff!

Contrabands are super soft.

romes tend to have good flex. bindings like ride are practically indestructible, but very stiff sometimes, i'd go with maybe the rome arsenal, shift, or 390s

75 lbs? how old are you? are you full grown? if not i would not waste the money on gear you will outgrow in a year or two just pick up a set of last years missions for like 50.

i think your use of the word practically was very liberal. there are countless threads of people destroying these bindings by simply taking them outta the package. are you getting some kinda top secret underground ride bindings?

I'm not fully grown, but I ride the same binding size as my dad, so I'm not worried about outgrowing them.
