Smile Binding advice for my Ride DH2, need opinions!

Hey everybody, I kinda fell into this new DH2 board. I was looking at maybe getting a new board this year and once a year Giants stadium holds a massive ski/snowboard sale. So I went with my friend to help her find a new board and looked at the Ride DH2 and the Salomon Villain . To make a long story short I went home and ordered the last years DH2 from the sale for like 300 bucks and they ended up shipping me the brand new model which is over 500! So now I'm in the market for bindings.

Just to quickly try and describe my style of riding: Iv been riding for about 17 years and have just recently got back into playing around in the park but I love the all mountain, glades, cliff drops, and hard charging stuff too. I basically enjoy using the whole mountain as a terrain park but need that stability super fast response for ducking in and out of trees and out of bounds terrain because in my opinion there is no better terrain to ride! I went with the DH2 which appears to give me the "best of both worlds" fit for the shredding power and response of the all mountain but the playful fun side for the freestyle park dude inside of me.

I originally picked up the Ride Maestro bindings but they sent me the medium size by accident and they didn't quite fit my boot but was able to demo the larges and they felt pretty good. But I just wanted to get everyone here's opinion to broaden my horizons a little bit. I realized after I bought the Maestros that I didn't really do much looking outside of Ride and now I have the opportunity so I hope to get some solid feedback here.

Thanks a lot in advance guys!

Well I would suggest the Flux TT30 or Rome 390 Boss. Flux has been my all time favorite. They are one of the most durable bindings I have ever had and they give you your money's worth too. Rome 390 Boss come right after.

I appreciate the response but I think after reading the post about the 390 Boss's I would be deathly afraid to even demo those lol. But the post is right thought their boards are pretty nice. My friend just picked up the Rome Artifact and loves it. Unless you have the 2012/13 Boss's they sound like nothing short of a death trap

Ride makes top notch bindings. I'd look at the Rodeo. My top fav's are the Union Atlas/SL, Burton Cartel, Raiden Phantom.

What do you mean? I have the 390 Boss's from 2011-current. They're seems to be nothing wrong with them.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions bro, I'll definitely take a look at those. I have had my previous setup for close to 7 years believe it or not so I'm really out if the loop with all the new companies who put out quality stuff.

If you look there is a thread about a guy who has the Boss's and said that they randomly come loose while riding and several other people with the same bindings have said the same thing. A few have said they have been hurt by it and really don't trust the binding while they ride. And for me if you don't have confidence in your gear there is nothing worse. I'm not saying they are bad, but just from what I read I'm going to stay away from those particular bindings.



What about flow bindings?? I have always been interested in them but never knew anyone who rides them and have been way too lazy to demo them somewhere haha.
