Light Bindings?

Ok so I got the 2010 never summer Evo-R.. Im looking to get a new set of bindings for this badboy. My old bindings were a pair of Rome Targas. i really liked these bindings b/c they can be used all mountain and even in the park. Im looking to keep those on my old board and use that as my all mountain set up. Im looking to set the evo-r up as my stricktly park board. As some may know the Evo-R is a pretty heavy board. So i am looking for a pair of durable light bindings that will help keep the weight down. I was looking into Union, Rome 390's (bc the targas are on the heavy side) and Rides. If anyone has any input i would really appreciate it

Thanks in advance!

So I am def. going with Rome's again.. I have had them for many years and i love em..

Now to choose between the targa or the 390 boss.

Targas color sure would look sick with my board. Howerver I don't care about that

Im looking for the lighter one.
The highback on the Boss i like
The adjustable stiffness of the Targas i like

Who knew this would be such a difficult decision

Prove it? Go pick one up and feel it. It is also even heavier with my old targas on it.

It's not as heavy as you think... Old NS sticks used to be heavy but now they're pretty much running neck and neck with all other reputable companies boards.

And man, I don't understand why some people freak out so much on weight... Why not get whatever you want and build up your muscles to compensate for whatever weight you may add?

If you like Targas, get some friggin Targas... Don't steer away from it just because it's a tiny bit heavier then another binding.

Boggles me that some people whine about a board being a little bit to long also... Adapt

THIS!

We're usually talking a matter of ounces here. That shit ain't gonna make a bit of difference except between your ears.

Hey genius, I owned an Evo last season, as well as a dozen other boards from NS, Bataleon, Nitro, etc... Just picking it up by hand, it's hardly heavier than other boards in the same size. A tiny bit, but not enough to effect my riding in any way. You're acting like it's pounds heavier, when it's really just ounces.

If you're looking for a really light park binding get the Ride Contraband. Otherwise stick with what you know you'll like.
