Bindings for Never Summer Heritage
Hey guys, new here, and somewhat new to snowboarding. Will be approaching my second season here in Colorado, and now that I have progressed I am looking to build my own setup. I am planning on buying a Never Summer Heritage and am torn as to what bindings to get. Really liking the Union Contact Pro's but also leaning towards the Union Chargers. Have also been considering the Flow NX2-AT. I am really liking the Chargers but have been told they have a lot of durabilty issues. I usually prefer to haul ass down mountains and through tree's as well as being able to make sharp turns as well as nice wide one's. Something responsive as well as somewhat stiff. Thank you in advance! :)

The Chargers would be a fine binding for it. The contact Pro's would be alright, but maybe a little "looser" feeling in the response department. Klingers suggestion for the Cartels is a good one too. They should be similar in feeling to the Contact Pro's. The Rome Targa is another binding worth checking out. Not as stiff as the Chargers, but stiffer than the Contact Pro's and Cartels. FWIW, I rode mine last season with Rome 390 Boss bindings, but likely will be switching to some Targas this season.

This statement should auto pop up for every "Which Bindings" thread for an all mountain board.

In order to avoid open another new topic I will ask permission to the author of this topic to share it because I am in a similar Situation I have a Never Summer Heritage X 2014 size 159 and I pretend to buy a good pair of bindings to match with these boards and with my K2 Thraxis. I think I am looking for a more oriented All Mountain Binding something Medium/Stiff.
I would like to hear your opinions.
At moment I am considering Union Atlas or Force (I can't know the difference between them Yet), Rome Targa (the most cool design in my opinion but I also read bad things about it), Ride Capo (don't know much about it, but seems reliable solid stuff) and the Burton Cartels that (but it seems there are diferent version on this model reflex, etc and I don't know wich to choose)
In advance I want to thank you for your opinions
Best regards

the only thing that makes me a little skeptical of the cartels is the thin piece of plastic that holds the highbacks to the binding and the big gap where the forward lean adjuster is. theres a guy that rides at my resort that completely folded in the plastic on the inside of the highback and doesnt look as though he would be getting too much response with it. he still rides with them though, not sure he realizes its even there. anybody else experience this? it could just be from improper adjusting.

What boots do you have?

All I can say is the Atlases and Cartels are both really good, versatile all mountain bindings. The differences between them are marginal and mostly come down to individual preference. The one thing I definitely like better about my atlases is that they are more adjustable. I believe they have made several changes to both the Contact Pros and Forces in the last year or two so I can't really comment on the differences there. Pretty sure the Targas, Chargers, and Capos will all be stiffer so really just depends what you're looking for.

I have a pair of K2 Thraxis, and also have a pair of old Salomon faction but the K2 Thraxis are the ones that I will use most of the time.

What size? The reason I ask is I've found that the adjustable heel loop on the Atlases makes centering "in between" sized boots much easier. Also while I've never tried the Targas I know that the 390s have a pretty narrow heel loop. Just something to consider.
