Need HELP - bindings for skunk ape
 
I'm 6'6", 190 lbs, and finally purchasing my own equipment. I picked up a sweet deal on some size 12 Synapse boots, and after reading everything on wide boards, I went with the Skunk Ape. I have been looking at some different bindings, but I wanted some opinions. Here is what I have been looking at:
Ride SPI
Burton Cartel
Union Force
Rome 390

I have also looked at the Flux SF45....

I ride a little of everything. I had a Burton Custom setup a few years ago, but got rid of it due to injury. Let me know what you guys think!

I would get SF45's or Flow ATSE's.

How are the SF45's as far as a good binding for larg-ish boots? I am trying to reduce, or avoid toe/heel drag in general

I have the sf45 on my raptor x 169 and ride size 12 synapse wides. I really like the bindings and would highly recommend on any aggressive all mountain or freeride setup. My only complaint of the sf45 is the weight. Other than that, the feel is great, very responsive but with good dampening. I don't have much overhang and can carve pretty deep without any problems. If I remember the SA is pretty wide so I doubt you'll have any problems. The sf45 has adjustable heel and toe plates so you can limit binding overhang if you're worried about that. The heel cup fits the synapse wides snug but not too tight. If I had the money I'd probably go with the DMCC for a little weight savings but overall I've been very please with the sf45.
