Question Binding decisions please help

Hello my fellow snowboards!

I've just bought a new board which is a mountain freestyle Ride Machete.
I spend my time riding the piste, having fun off piste and hitting a couple of jumps.

I'm looking for a mid flex pair of bindings that are a bit forgiving with landings but can handle the piste. Therefore I'm looking for a good all round binding. My current bindings are some 3 year old Burton Missions which have been great.

I'm looking at some Rome 360 Bosses and some Ride Capo's.

The only worries I have with both are the toe straps. Both seem a bit flimsy and they look easy to rip compared to the solid burton straps you tend to see.

What do you think? Any recommendations?

The fuck is a rome 360? You mean 390s? (teasing) I just bought some Rome 390's so I'd toss my hat in that ring. I use mine on a all mountain board as well. Plus the cambering options are nice if that's your thing.

If you are keen on the Capo's I have been beating the shit out of my 2013's this year. Banging into trees, rocks, crashing into other shit and I am yet to even tear one part of my webbing. I honestly expected to tear them a little by now, but have been pleasantly surprised that I have not.

The new Burton Custom Reflex's are great! They also have the cap strap which I prefer over the regular toe strap. The stiffness is perfect for all around riding with the perfect flex on the high back.

The Capo's are a pretty stiff binding. The 390 is relatively soft. It sounds like you'd want something more in the middle of those.
