Default Maestro vs 390 boss

For all-mtn, freestyle- which would suite me better? im 150lbs and am looking for something medium flex.

is the thin ankle strap on the Maestro's flexible enough to allow natural forward flex in your boots? I NEED that with my riding style. In other words, do they restrict the mid section of your boot from flexing forwards?

I prefer non-canted bindings to be honest, but I think that's because my feet are slightly pronated.

The best thing is Rides from 2010: NRC, CAD and may be SPI.
There you got 4 screws in base plate, and you can set any canting. And more over, you can lift front of binding one one foot and heel on another. This really rocks, and once i heard supermodel and c60, i think Planespotting will appreciate it.

as far as i know the canted options are: rome, ride, k2, burton, raiden.

rome, ride, and k2 use regular canting. burton i think uses "auto canting" or something like that. i think it's different densities of foam so that it cants based on where you put your weight. (i could be completely wrong on that) and raiden uses what they call "air canting," whatever that is. i assume it means there's air in the foam base.

i did not know that salomon had canting...
Flow offer some models with canting. Also, some Forum models have "simmer down" canting which is the same idea as the Burton canting feature.

Look into Rome, K2, Ride, Burton for canting. I had the Ride NRC and CAD when canting first came out and it was cool, but you really don't need that much adjustment and extra weight, even less so when some like Rome Boss bindings give you several different footbed options in the box.
