Picked up a new Ride DH2.5 decks...now use my 390's or Targas

Hey all -
I'm excited now that I just purchased a Ride DH2.5 deck. I'm super amped to try out their new hybrid profile. I'm coming off my NS SL-R which I believe the DH2.5 will handle the higher speeds with more stability.

My intentions for this deck are to use it for my all mountain freestyle riding (more 90 % all mountain and 10% parks...no jibs). No backcountry or major off piste riding. This will be for cruising, groomers, trees, charging and all around riding with friends with natural kickers and such. I won't be venturing into the parks much (unlike with my SL-R).

Now given the type of riding I'd like to do, should I use my 390's or Targas?

Thanks for any inputs.

I've never used Targas but if I was doing the riding it sounds like you're going to be doing I'd want something stiffer then my 390s.

Targa's huh? I actually just picked this deck up too, and have been trying to decide which bindings I should mount. I have pretty much the same riding style as the OP. I would lean towards 75%all mtn and 25% park. I was looking at the 390 Boss or the Ride Delta MVMNT, as both seem like they would pair up very well with this board.

Deltas would work well.

OP: Targas, the LE's this year are crazy stiff and poppy.

Another question...

For those that say Targa over 390. If you don't mind explaining...why? What will the Targas provide as an advantage over the 390s for what I'm looking to do and/or vice versa? Sorry...just trying to get a better understanding.
