Default Rome 390 Boss Decade or Union Atlas?

Out of pure dumb luck I found a shop with ONE of each left, both 2012 models. I was previously thinking of Atlas or Targa but the 390 Boss Decade looks really nice too.

Both are $240-ish and I could have either for $200 tonight.

I am pretty much freeride only. I avoid the park.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Or I just found some Targas for $240. Seems like the others are a better deal (compared to regular price) though.

I am leaning towards the Decades for the price. I tried to talk the Targas down but no dice so far.

For freeriding I would get the Targas.

Targas or Atlas if you aren't going in the park at all

Well, I was at A-Basin and Keystone Friday and Saturday.

Overall, I loved the Targas. The straps (toe in particular) were great and I loved the canted footbed. Minor annoyances for a $250 binding? The ankle strap padding is discoloring unevenly after two days of use and the powdercoat of paint is chipping off the heelcup in several places.

Overall, satisfied, but I would have preferred something that expensive not have these issues - particularly the ankle strap discoloration.

Too bad you didn't see my Targas that were up for sale only after 3 runs on them. That's 3 MI runs which means less than 10 minutes on the bindings haha.
