Some comparison help
 
I've searched and read and searched and read, and yet I am going to post this. I'm looking to get some new bindings to replace my old beat up Cartels. I'm looking at either the Ride RX, Ride SPi, Rome Targa, or Flux Feedbacks. I ride all over the mountain. Trees, parks, groomers, whatever. I'm not really a big time jibber though. Anyway, let me know what you like or don't like about any of the bindings I have listed that you might have experience with. Thanks guys!

Ditch the RX and SPI. RX is nothing special. The SPI sounds too stiff for your style of all-around riding. I personally love the SPI's, but I am also and aggressive rider. Even then, I would only use the SPI strictly for all-mountain freeriding and nothing else.

The best Ride binding for you in my opinion is the Delta. If you can afford, the 2011 Ride Delta's highbacks have been improved. I personally find them real comfy and the flex is smooth.

On the Rome front, from everything I've heard, the Targas are super steezy. You can adjust the hell out of them so it can pretty much cover every type of riding you do. Still a little stiff for park, but hey... you only hit it some of the time right?

Another Rome binding to consider is the 390 Boss. Not the stiffest binding, but cant bed options keep you comfy especially if you cowboy a duck stance.

Sounds like you're looking for a similar setup as I am. I'll be replacing my Cartels with a set of 2011 Ride Deltas or Rome Targas. I'd say the SPi's would be stiffer all around than the Cartels. I'm leaning towards the Targas because of the adjustability and because I'm a little worried the highbacks on the Deltas would be a little softer than the Cartels.

I would definitely go with Feedbacks or Targas.

Deltas are sweet and would be a good fit for you. I am a fairly similar rider, although I do jib from time to time, and I am picking up Flux SF 45s. Flux looks to have very nice and cushy comfortable bindings and apparently last awhile.
