*All Mountain Bindings* for Rossi OneMag board, Salomon boots

Hey all, goin for a big upgrade to my gear for the upcoming season and lookin for some all mountain bindings to go with a rossignol 1mag board, and salomon boots.

As far as the boots go, from what I read I am between the F22s and the Malamutes. Just waiting to actually try them on first before I commit.

I live in Montana and here's my style of riding:

I ride bumps/moguls a lot, some powder runs, and either tuckin down groomers or going down a groomer with a lot of quick edge to edge carving. I do a little freestyle/park but really prefer a binding that will be more tailored towards all mountain.

*BUT*...I also will be teaching snowboarding on this setup, so these considerations have to be taken into account. I don't want any bindings to be excluded from being mentioned because of these considerations as I am ok with the bindings being more oriented towards my actual riding, just would like to know why a certain binding would not be good because of these factors.

1. I will be getting in and out of the bindings a lot, so an entry/release system that is very quick while also being durable enough to withstand a lot of getting in and out of.

2. I will be standing talking sometimes (not a lot!) and would prefer a binding with a comfortable highback, and baseplate. I am ok with a highback with a lot of forward lean (the Cartel) if it can be adjusted and if there is some good cushioning.

Here are some bindings that I was already looking at and would like some feedback on from anyone who has used these:

-Burton Cartels
-K2 Autos
-Rome Arsenal, Targa, 390

Price and brand aren't an issue.

Huge thanks to any and all who read through this and post some feedback!

You want a stiffer and more responsive binding for sure. Rome Arsenal, Ride SPi/CAD, Flux DMCC, K2 Auto Ever.

Arsenals definitely suit your riding style; however, the Targas may be a better choice as they are more customizable in terms of stiffness. The highbacks don't have crazy forward lean (enough for me) and are quickly adjustable. The Auto-strap makes them easy in/out, and they're pretty much bombproof.

Oh, also super comfortable and you've got Rome's signature customer service. I mentioned in an email to them (they asked me to report back on how I liked the bindings) that the heel strap wasn't staying in the garage... they're sending me brand new replacement ankle straps.

I ride sz 10 F22s in a L/XL Targa.

Check them out.
