what to get for a mid-flex binding??

im looking to get a pair of mid-flex bindings for my new mtn/freestyle board ill be getting this year, what would u suggest? i would like something with a toe cap instead of a strap across top of the boot if possible...ive been lookin ar rome,ride,unions, but not sure yet, i ordered a pair of union forces last year and sent them back cause the straps seemed way hard to get unlatched, and i like something kinda quick, i got a pair of burton missions on my other board and i love them, theyve held up great...

What kind of money are you looking to spend? The Forces are $200 so for $50 more you could get Flux SF45's and the ratchets are top notch. Plus it has what I feel is the best cap strap on the market.

I never rode Flux so i cant comment on it. But IMO Rome's toestrap/Cap is one of the best out there.
Go to the shop and check out the Targa's. I have a pair that I have been using for 2 years. They are built tough and what is cool is you can adjust the flex of the ankle strap. That and them being very adjustable you can set it to your preference.

My old pair i set up very loose and used it in park other days i set it up stiff and rode steeps and pow. I am going back to Rome for a pair of Park bindings because of their quality and especially customer service. I had a little rip in fabric on my toe strap flap that hides the ladder bc i caught it on something and they sent me 2 new ones ASAP.

I would get another set of Targa's but i can still use my pair from 2008 lol so no real sense of getting them. going to stay with rome though and get some Bosses.
Everyones preference is different so take suggestions from the forum but it's always good to take a ride to your local shop and check them out in person

No it's far from soft. It has the 45% blend in the base plate and the nylon infused Highback. JP Solberg, Eric Willet, and Scott Vine all ride this binding year round and you won't push its limits anywhere close to what these guys do.

The DS45 is the one you want to stay away from because it has the urethan highback which makes it considerably less responsive.

I'm going to spit the same recommendations...

Rome 390 Boss

or

Ride Delta

Rome 390 Boss > All Unions



Actually, that's just an assumption since I haven't ridden a Union yet
