Ride Deltas vs Rome 390's

So im 5'8 190 lbs, size 12 boots, 32 lashed boots, probably Ride Kink. What should I buy between the Ride Deltas vs Rome 390's and also the Ride ex. Its going to be used with a park board and I want my bindings to be somewhat responsive. I also have some problems with my knees and I was wondering if the Wedgies help any?

Rome 390 = $ 158.97 CAD
Ride Deltas = $ 223.96 CAD
Ride EX = $ 151.96 CAD

Suggestions?

Thanks

I bought some Rome 390's a month ago, and all I can say is these things are pretty badass, beefy, padded but still light, and cheap for what your getting. They're pretty highly recommended on this forum, why I bought mine. Mine are going on a park board as well, (Never Summer Evo-r).

Where did you get these prices? Are they for next year because they seem awfully high...

Regarding specifically the EX bindings, if you go that route splurge a bit and get RX's. They have upgraded cant beds and are supposed to be a bit more park oriented than the EX bindings (which, to my understanding and experience are a "do it all" binding).

I think we could probably find better prices for you (unless they're next years), even with the whole Canadian thing, but I might be wrong.

Given the pricing differences, it's an easy decision. Rome 390's are a great binding even at full retail anyways,.

Go with the 390s. They are responsive, but also forgiving enough should you have a sketchy landing in the park. I find the Delta's a little stiffer than I would like in the park.

BTW, which local store is this? I would love to know if they have an online site.
