Default Ride CAD or Rome Targa on my Ride Highlife?

I just polished off my quiver by picking up Triple8Sol's Ride Highlife today (joining my Ride Slackcountry and Never Summer SL), but I'm not sure what bindings I want to throw on it. I don't really feel like going out and buying a fresh pair of bindings (at least until the late season sales), so I'm going to choose between the Ride CADs on my Slackcountry and Rome Targas on my SL. This board is going to be my hard charging freeride board so I'm leaning toward the CADs because I love the response. On the other hand, the Targas could be pretty fun on the Highlife as well. What do you guys think?

Rock the CAD's that is basically there most freeride oriented board (besides the slackcountry) so it seems like a nice match.

I have a Never Summer Legacy 174, a Ride Yukon 172 an a Rome Flag 168. Last season I had a CAD but never get realy used to it, the CAD was little to stiff and kind of uncomfortable. I just sold them a few days ago.

Right now im riding a Rome 390 and a Rome Targa, both 2009/2010 models and I like them over all my previous bindings.

hah =)
I got Legacy 174 too, and got CAD for that season. I'm so amazed with them. Solid, stiff and responsive. They're soooo good for freeride, bigger speed, but too stiff for allmountain. I'd change my deck next season, but i'd keep the CAD's.

Wow, I never met another rider here in Germany with a NS 174...mine is a 2004 model. So as they evolved their rocker/ camber technology, are you riding a Legacy with rocker?

The CAD where to stiff for too me as I am riding mostly all mountain. I am fine now with the Rome Targa and the 390.

Well, i'm from Kazachstan first =)
Yes, I got Legacy-R from 08-09 year, that's the firs year with rocker. Mostly i ride powder, forests. Some jumps, simple grabs.
As i said, the CAD is stiff for Legacy, but it's ok for me. I think i'd get stiffer board next year, if i won't move away from here. I've been looking at Targas, but i got the CAD's for a cheap, way cheaper then Targas.

Moreover, i think it depends on riders weight. CAD's is just a bit stiff for a 220lbs riders(I think SNowpro is 200+lbs, if he rides 174), and veryyyy stiff, if you weight is 150-160lb or less.

So, I recently sold my CAD binding over ebay and got a message about shipping worldwide from a guy from kasachstan, was that you?

I am pretty happy with these rome bindings, they are my best bindings in the last 16 years since I am snowboarding :-)
