RomeTarga vs. Union Atlas vs. Flux SF45? for a 2011 T Rice Pro.
Im in the market for a new set of bindings for this season and my top choices at the moment are
Rome Targas, Union Atlas, and Flux SF45's
I've been riding for about 6 years, and consider myself intermediate to advance rider mostly for steeps, deep pow, trees, trails, and mogouls. also once in awhile hitting the park. I just got a new 2011 T Rice Pro HP, and wear size 9.5 Thirty-Twos.
Ideally, i'd like to have a set of bindings that are light, responsive, and very comfortable, defintely leaning towards a med-stiff binding as park would be at the buttom of my list.
with the Atlas they are definetly light enough, but when playing around with them in the store they felt a little finicky when trying to release the buckles, like almost getting stuck and not very smooth for releasing the latches. That was kind of a turn off.
I've never had a chance to play with the SF45's in person but I've heard good things about these.
and the one set romes i got to play with felt a little heavy, but i've read that they're perfect for my style of riding.
I've come from burton customs that i've used for 6 years and finally grew out of them, and also feeling that they're highbacks are a little uncomfortable.
any personal feedback to help me narrow it down to 1, or even pros and cons of each would be greatly appreciated !
- or maybe you have some other suggestions for my style of riding?
