For the people who have rode canted bindings? Did you really like it that much, something that you wouldn't ride without after trying it?

Not a make or brake. But if you have the option and they aren't any better or worse than your other option, pick the cants.

Do you want a toestrap that slips, or one of the best toestraps on the market? Go Rome.

Toe strap doesn't slip on my boot?

It depends on the boot with Union toe straps. Something like '09 Rulers? Yeah that is going to slip with everything except Ride and maybe Rome. But on something a little more boxy and solid in the toebox, the Union strap works great. On easyloungin.com there is a Union binding thread that I believe on the first page has pictures of how to and how not to use the Union toe strap. It supposed to sit a little different than most others. It more rides the tip instead of cupping the front. Just as comfortable in my experience.

I've had 3 pairs of Unions and never have had issues with slipping. I have availability to pretty much whatever toe straps I want but I don't feel the need to change.

so has anyone rode the 2011 Targa's. Im still trying to decide if i should get them or the boss for my evo-r. I know the evo is more a park board but i see myself using it all over. I want to see if the Targa's are any good for the park. I heard the boss stiffened up this year an can handle almost everything.

I am going through the same debate as everyone else here and am still undecided but I will tell you the following. Yesterday I was at the local board shop talking to the guy I have been buying from for 3 years and he told me that shops are increasingly refusing to stock Rome bindings because they are just a phase and made a good binding without pursuing their innovations further. I was reluctant at first but I contacted at least 8 shops in the NYC/NJ area and none had any Rome bindings in stock.

I was about to pull the trigger on the Targas but now am left undecided yet again.

Have you checked out the SF45's? The more I look into flux the more I'm thinking those are the winners for me. I'm going to be riding a 11 NS Heritage so they seem to match up with that board well. I've also heard they are pretty good all around. Supposed to be super comfortable bindings.

I haven't had a chance to check them out and most shops here don't stock flux bindings just the usual burton and flow. They are getting the SLs on wed so I will come down to check it out. I am riding the same board so maybe I will wait until next week for it to come in and take the board to the shop.
