My buddy still does, but it's just 'cause that's what he learned on and I'm pretty sure he fears change.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

And you should go ride just about any other modern binding other than Burton and see what a real zero forward lean feels like

I bought my Targas about a week ago..still haven't used them yet (this weekend). The strap is hollow for the C-flex inserts. They still retain excellent comfort!

I was thinking of going the extreme-opposite so i have two completely different boards (i was considering the evil twin but i dont want a "all around" board that will replace my funkink)
am i right on wanting the riot for mid-big kicker, cruise, and pow riding? or should i go the evil twin route??
The key here is that you're building a quiver, not replace your existing board. Go for a stiffer board with a faster sintered base. I'd suggest either the Riot or Jam. I loved my Riot for AM--it's what sold me on tbt, but the Jam has turned out to be my favorite so far.

18 Rome Katana . 17 Burton Malavita Wing . 16 Burton Genesis X
16 Flow Talon

does it have enough play on the rest of the mountain for me to have fun? (aka do alittleeee bit of flatland butters and play on little side hits)

Yes, the Riot butters very well and can be played around with all over the mountain. The riot and jam are very similar, both excellent freestyle/AM boards.
