Targas on Proto

Did anyone else pair a Proto and Targas together here? Have you ridden this combo? How'd you like it?

I went against all conventional wisdom and ordered the Targas lol. I love those bindings that much. Gives me an excuse to look for a stiffer board if it doesn't work out on the Proto (I'm sure I can work it though haha).

I'm more looking for peace of mind here. The 390 Boss is optimal for me on this board, but I already have those and I'm too lazy to keep swapping them between my boards.

I bought the 390 boss for my proto ct and dedicated my Burton CO2 to my other board and set it up for more mountain riding, so if the targa fails you can just do that.

I know this post was absolutely no help at all haha

Was going to pm you back but since you replied here...

The Malavitas are a great pairing especially if you can land yourself a pair of the restricted non-est winged versions. They aren't a park specific binding. They are mid flex and great for all-mountain freestyle. Trust me, if the company I work for carried those, that's what I would have got.

I still love the Targas and have always planned on adding it to my collection. I just said wtf and got them now and will try them on Proto for shit and giggles.

I really like the Proto with Rome 390 Bosses though. I have them on my Evo and it's just a matter of me being too lazy to constantly swap between the two boards.

You could also go with:

Ride Rodeo: Same as last years Deltas with some tweaks. Mid-flex binding that is very comfortable with excellent toe straps

Ride Maestro: Mid-stiff binding and is last year's Alphas. Thin ankle strap that you can barely feel is there, but gives you the support you need. It's a forgiving ankle strap, while the chassis and highback of the binding is responsive.

Problem is, my bosses are dedicated to my Evo haha. I refuse to ride any other bindings on the Evo.

Thanks Leo any reason for the winged restricted ? Cause I was just looking at the regular .... Would u switch the wing backs so that the wings are on the inside ? I heard someone say that it's better that way

I personally only like the wings for the comfort. It just adds comfort, but I can still do without them. That's why I'm saying get it if you have the option between the two.

I don't really notice much performance difference. Maybe it helps me lean into my presses more? But I don't really have a problem pressing anyway. Again, just a comfort thing for me. I like the feel of the wing on the back of my boot. And no, I've never tried them on the inside. That doesn't sound appealing at all haha.

last year I tested the proto w/ cartels and it worked great. I bought a proto for this season and will be using it as a vehicle to test a few different bindings.

I have been thinking about putting the non-winged versions on my SL. Do you think it would be still responsive enough for all mountain?
