Arrow Rome Targa for park riding?

I'm trying to decide between Rome Targas and 390 Bosses. I do mostly park riding - jibs and kickers. It seems to me like Targas are made for big kickers and large park features while 390 Bosses are more pressy for butters and jibs. Does anyone out there use one of these bindings? Can I use Targas exclusively for park riding, or should I go with the 390's? Please help!

Honestly if your primarily doing park the 390 bosses will probably be better. It's not like they are noodley bindings or anything, they are just not freeride specific like the Targas kinda are,(not that you can't use the Targas for freestyle). I mostly freeride and I use 390's, the 390 bosses will be even better because of the cant system.

I have last years Targa and 390. The Targa is on my pow board and the 390's are on my park board.

The only real difference between the two is the Targa has a stiffer highback. The ankle strap on the 390 is much nicer as it's kinda gelly, but the cflex inserts on the Targa are pretty awesome because you can dial in more support when you want it. For what it's worth, unless you're hitting MASSIVE park features you're probably going to be better off with the 390. It can handle whatever you throw at it in the park and can still do some all mountain stuff if required.

I also have 390s on my everyday/park board and targas on my powder board.

Last week, I found myself riding my park board in deep powder and the 390s worked fine (my park board is a little stiffer and wider than usual)...however, I don't think I'd ever use my targas in the park

Disagree. I use my targas in the park for jumps and pipe without issues. It takes a little more work for jibs, etc, but doable.
