So I'm buying new bindings and I'm looking for a good all mountain binding. I'm not quite ready to be riding park yet, more working on my switch riding at the moment but, would like to be riding in the park towards the latter half of the season. I've been riding for 5 years now; however, due to age (no mode of transportation) went to the mountain about 5-7 times per year, max. So, now I'm looking to get into snowboarding a lot more this year and with that comes the replacement of my beginner gear, ie, boots that were given to me for free that didn't fit properly at all with TONS of heel lift and my current pair of bindings, 5150 FF2500's.
Anyways, I'm lost as to which bindings I should get as using thegoodride as my review source as all the top end bindings seem to be the same (all mountain freestyle) yet on here people seem to be able to categorize, for example the rome 390's as mostly a park binding (from my understanding), yet according to thegoodride they are all mountain bindings. Oh, and I'm 6'1" and 170 lbs. Any feedback/help is very much appreciated.
Alright, so I looked around and none of my local shops sell the Ride Delta's, so I would have to order them in. I asked if they had any Rome Targa's and one shop said they had last years model and it was on for $170...so either I can get those or order in Delta's from somewhere or this years Targa's. You say the Targa's are too stiff, is that meaning in the park, or just in general as from what I have been reading a medium stiffness binding is good for carving up blacks, which is where I am at now. So I guess what I'm asking is paying an extra $80 or so worth it for Delta's/this years Targa's vs getting last years Targa's?
