Default Ride Revolt vs. Ride Alpha MVMNT vs. Contraband

I searched through the forums.

I don't want reviews of all three, I've gotten those from all over the interwebz.

Looking for feedback about the three from you guys and girls, well mainly guys because I'm a guy... So pros/cons if you've only used one or two.. but overall just experience with them you've had..

Looking for a freeride/freestyle binding mainly for groomers... I likes to do tricks and I'm kind of sold on the 2.5 wedgie bed... was looking at the Rome Boss 390 but this is looking interested so I want to just see, thanks!

I have the 2010 ride alphas sitting on a broken DH2 right now. Rode them about ~30 times so far and they are awesome. True all mountain, freestyle capable binding. Couple of things though:

1) I didn't find them as light as most people said they would be. I guess I just had my hopes up.
2) The straps are great. I'm a big fan of rides toe straps. The thin grip ankle really give you great responsiveness to the binding, but without padding, it exposes any points of boot discomfort that cushier straps may mask.
3) They are overpriced, so are really on worth it if you can get a deal IMO

I just got the 2011 390 bosses and only have about 3 days on them with a jib stick, but I love the shit out of them. The ability to customize the toe and heel cant individually really changes the feel. They have the perfect amount of flex but YMMV. I don't really have any cons because we're still in the honeymoon stage.

Deltas are better than Alphas, as someone mentioned, Alphas are a little over priced.

I would go Delta or 390 Boss if it were me.

I have only had a litle personal experience on the deltas but I would choose those if I leaned slightly more towards freestyle and alphas if I leaned slightly towards freeride, money not withstanding. The difference is all in the little things that fine tune the binding to the type of riding you're doing.
