Rome or Burton

I have been looking for a new all mountain binding. I mostly freestyle ride and do a little park. I had a cheap pair of burton bindings and I really like the front toe strap. I heard good things about both the Rome 390 boss and of course the Burton cartel. The Rome say the top strap can go over or in front of the toe but was wondering how well it fit. Any input would help.
Also a good boot that goes good with either binding would help too. Boot size 10 1/2. And I ride a lib tech dark series. Thanks for your time.

The (Rome)toe straps fit nicely both over and in front of my Salomon's.

The rome targas would be a better match with the dark series. If you have a narrow foot the solomon f22s or f20s are good low profile boots

I ordered Targas. I had the ankle strap ratchet break completely off a Burton Mission in the store while ratcheting an empty boot. That sorta killed what little desire I had left for Burton bindings. After that, I wanted Targas or some Unions. Ended up choosing Targas.

I was supposed to get them today actually - but I noticed at lunch when I checked the tracking info that apparently Backcountry.com included a signature confirmation...so UPS didn't drop them off. I hate that. How many people are home during the day? I guess I have to wait one more day...

I rode Cartels. Good binding. I bought Rome Targas(holy sh!t). Got the targas on my kids stick and have Union Forces on mine. I was thinking about the 390 bosses to replace the forces. I'm a huge fan of Rome's products! I think they are an all around great company.

That's correct - the whole idea behind the Conformist strap family is that you can ride it over the boot, or as a toe cap. However you want!

I went from a Mission to a 390, and the 390 is soooooooo much better quality.
