Default Binding advice requested

I had the chance to pick up some 2012 Rome MOBs on a really good sale to replace some very cheap entry level bindings. The box listed the stiffness as middle of the road. I don't ride any park but I'm pretty new (2 years) so I thought middle of the road would be more forgiving for general riding. I am currently riding a Never Summer SL, and the more I have been thinking about it, the more concerned I am that the bindings I got are going to be too soft.

Does anyone have any advice or experience with these bindings?

I can probably return them for an exchange if necessary.

Thanks for any help.

It's all personal preference, but I'd say they're to soft. The 390 boss, or Flux tt30s would still be on the soft side, but give you better response.

i would say they're probably a bit soft. i have a ns legacy (wide version of sl) and i have rome targas on it, which are much stiffer than mob. k2 formula would be a very good pair to check out. 2012 models can be had for pretty cheap right now.

I felt like Mobs were almost too soft for an Artifact. So yeah I'd get somethin else.

Formulas are a great option, Companys if they have them. Cartels, Targa's, 390's, SF45's...

Thanks for the feedback.

I am a bit disappointed in Rome for listing the binding as middle of the road as far as stiffness goes on the box, but it seems like most people list it as very soft. Seems a bit deceptive.

Check out 390 Bosses but Formulas are a good choice too as they are stiffer than the 390s. I use the Auto Uprise, which are basically Formulas with auto tech

I've got 390 Bosses and they are softer than my Flux TT30.

I would just like to chime in with everyone else. The MOB didn't work for me at all last year. I tested them on a soft deck and they were my least favorite bindings I tested all last year. Couldn't imagine them on an SL. Many better choices out there, good luck!
