Whats up everyone, well I havent been riding in a long time (like 9 years) Ive missed it to much so I bit the bullet and bought all new gear this year except bindings. Im pretty much stuck between two 2013 Ride Maestro or 2013 Rome Targa I'm a All Mountain Freestyle Rider with the intention on trying to spend more time park riding.
Im 6'0 215lbs I have a 2013 GNU Riders Choice 162w and 2013 Ride Triad spdl any info or suggestions would be helpful....Thanx
Isn't the Riders Choice a mid to stiff board? I was reading the thread and then it got confrontational, but staying on topic, I agree the Targas are going to be too much for a park binding.
I claim myself to be an allmtn freestyle rider. I think I tried some Burton P1 back in 2005 and that was a stiff binding. I didn't like it in the park as it did not allow any mistakes. If the Targas are one of the stiffer bindings in the Rome line up, I wouldn't suggest them. Basically what Leo said.
I like the suggestions from Alkasqualik. I tried some Contact Pros and enjoyed them for everything...all-mtn and park. If I wanted more response, I would just add some fwd lean. I also tried Forces about 2 yrs ago. Didn't have an issue with them and agree about comparing them to Cartels. I've ridden both.
hahaha sorry man, its being really frustrating learning your language
No worries my dude. Major respect to people learning/speaking different languages, I wish I had it in me. I tried learning French and Spanish in high school and then again throughout college, but it never clicked for me.
OP - With an all-mountain background, you may find some of the really soft stuff kind of frustrating when it's not all that responsive. To mellow it up a little without losing too much control, I'd ssecond Rome 390s or Union Atlases or Forces. Also: Burton Malavitas, Cartels, or Missions. I'm not familiar enough with Ride to recommend anything beyond the Rodeos.
