In your OP you say more big mountain stuff. You need a stiffer binding for that, and you need a stiffer binding for the trice. Given those two I think you should get the capo.

For park get a different setup. That's not the right board.

Check out Rome Targas. It has different settings to make ur bindings med flex to super stiff flex. Snowolf did a review in the bindings review section. I'm on my iPhone or I would post the link. Also, evo.com has them on sale for $187. But I haven't checked anywhere else for better deals.
With the riding style ur doing, get stiffer bindings. Canted beds has great reviews alone

I can't speak on the Autocant system as I have never used it, but I can say that the Yes I Cant on the Rome's is amazing. My knees would hurt after a ong day of shredding in my Union Flites, but in my 390 Boss there is zero soreness in them at the end of the day. Canting works. It made a believer out of me.
What degree of angle u running on ur canted bed?

Re: cartels, ride capo's or 390 boss for my t rice

IS3, I use the full 3.5 degree. The 2 degree was alright, but the 3.5 just felt better to me. OP, the Targas are a solid choice from everything I have heard. They were what I was going to buy before I got my 390 Boss. I might still buy a pair if I catch them for the right price.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I have used 390 boss, cartels, and force on my 153 t rice.

Force was too stiff for my liking. cartels were definitely flexible on the t rice. I found the 390s is the happy medium. Hope this helps.

Fwiw, I have 390 bosses on a riders choice which is a flexier board than a t rice. Good fit. I have it on 2 deg canting.

checkin out the maestro..they might be a good choice ahead of the capo if i want something a little more forgiving but still stiffer. I wish all the brands used the same flex rating system. id really like to know how maestros compare to cartels compared to rome targa. I think id shy away from the cartels just cos of the auto cant system vs real canting. however how to know which binding from rome/ride match in flex

Lots of good suggestions on here. Only way for you to actually decide is to get some and try them out. If you don't like them sell them before you put too much wear on them. As far as the stiffness goes, you need to figure it out. Just because I prefer stiff baseplate doesn't mean you will. Your really just going to need to pick one and see how it goes unless you can find a place to demo them. Not the answer you're looking for but it's the truth.
