Default NS Heritage + Targa, 390 Boss or SF45 ?

Hi,

I have about 3 seasons old NS Heritage and I'm looking for bindings that would fit it best.
I mainly do FR but I'd like to try some small time FS and have bindings that doesn't make it too difficult. Currently I have super stiff bindings that give me problems with landing
When I speak about FS, I mean during the ride FS, maybe occasional kicker but no jib or halfpipe stuff.

Are Targas really that customizable?
I checked 390 Boss on shelf in shop (they were left of Targas) but their highback seemed to be soft to me. On the other hand, my first bindings were super cheap Nideckers ad I was able to do more fun stuff with them.

I've read ppl recommend SF45s for BX boards as well and if Targa is +- SF45 then I afraid they going to be too stiff.

390 is too soft for that board. Either of the other 2 are good choices.

Thanks. Any recommendation of one over another? I remember you fell in love with Flux but is SF45 better in every aspect than Targa?
Is SF45 as customizable as Targa? I see SF45 as stiffer one than Targa is possible to customize but I haven't tried any of them.

I wear Northwave EU43,5 (285mm), this is US9.5 I believe, will it fit M size of SF45?

I'm actually considering the same two for my Raptor X (force sl is in there too). I usually prefer a stiff binding so I'm leaning towards the sf.

The idea of canting is something I'm intereseted in though as it should help me keep centered a little better. Not sure if you've experienced this on the heritage, but occasionally I'll get knocked off line and it'll send me to the tail of the board. This "oh crap" moment is something I've been working on correcting and I'm thinking cants might be a potential solution.

Any insight is much appreciated.
