Default Help a noob out, bindings for my ride machete

Ok guys you probably heard it all before and gave out your recommendations but ive searched through posts and cant find the info i want. Im looking for a great all mountain binding to suit my style of riding which is basically mostly free riding on groomed runs but im slowly going to start to get into jumps and rails. I was thinking the rome 390s or flux tt30s but are they too park orientated? This is my first season with my own board so i want to try get the set up as good as i can for my style for me to progress and become a better boarder

Or should i go with something more stiffer like rome targas or double agents. I know these can be adjusted by the ankle strap by yer the highback is still pretty stiff

Idk if theres a true "park oriented" bindings. Its hard to research bindings because their so many and theres so much BS technology behind them. As long as your bindings are comfortable (as in you don't feel them), and are relaxing to go edge to edge with (aka response) then buying a different pair of bindings is completely un-neccessary. For the most part stay away from burton customs and just obviously crappy bindings (flux gets a way with the crappy binding look. Their actually really good from what I hear).

I have a pair of rome 390's and their not holding me back at all and I've been riding park for over 5 years. Just don't constrain your self and get all paranoid about bindings, because they all do the exact same thing.



EDIT:
I say it wont make a huge difference. As long as its not super stiff like burton c60's.

My favorite do it all bindings are Flow M9's, Raiden Zero's, Flux TT30's, and Rome 390's.

Default Tt30

What board are you putting them on? I was in the same boat earlier this season. I opted for a Ride DH and set it up with TT30's. I believe they are a perfect match, stiff enough for charging and jumping with enough flex for boxes and rails. You can find them online for less than $150.
