Rome Targas on my Evo?

Are the Rome Targas too stiff for my new 158 Evo? Im about 80% freeride and 20% park....There are some days that I dont go to the park at all...Thoughts?

One of the best features of the targas is how adjustable they are. I ride 08 targas on a new never summer revolver which is the wider evo. I just spent my first two days with the setup sunday and monday at mount snow and i have to say i was VERY VERY impressed with the new board. I ride about 50 50 park and freeride and i think the setup is working out great so far. I ride with no inserts in the targas at all. I like them at like this for the park and have gotten used to it on the mountain. Just play around with your targa adjustments and im sure you will be more than happy. Try putting the softer inserts in and using them for both. I think that would be a good middle ground for you.

I have the Targas on my 158 Heritage at the moment and instead of buying another set of bindings just for the Evo, I wanted to see if this was feasible. I suppose I will put them on the evo and test it out! Thanks man...

It's more than feasible. Just changing the inserts makes a big difference.

I cant stress this enough. The targas are some of the best bindings in the market for both freeriding and freestyle and its due to how adjustable they are.

If you already own the bindings and board, whatever happened to trying it out for yourself?
