I have not done a side by side but Ride bindings are generally stiffer than average as Ride boards are damper than average.

E.g., Ride EX is plenty of binding for most applications. No experience with the maestro but it sounds pretty good based on others' feedback.

The 390 Boss will not be to soft and flexy for your T. Rice. I use mine on a 2014 NS Heritage and they pair up great. I still say Cartels or 390 Boss for your needs. The Targas would be a good choice as well. Not that different in terms of stiffness from the 390 Boss, but they do have a little more adjustability.

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

What is your take on the maestros or raiden blackhawks? Do you think they would be too stiff and unforgiving for an intermediate rider like myself?

I haven't ridden either of those bindings, but I have heard good things about the Raidens. Sorry I can't help you out more on them.

its hard for me to decide on a binding cos everyone likes most of the bindings ive listed. i guess the deciding factor is whether it would be suited to me - an intermediate rider on a 153 t rice. i like to bomb down and carve and want to start doing some jumps (not park per se) and some people have suggested that a flexier binding (still relatively stiff) might be easier for someone to learn to nail their landings...thats why ive decided maestros or blackhawks

k2 company - $259.34
rome 390 boss - $323.90
ride maestros - $351.58
raiden blackhawks - can't get them shipped here

Cartels (I Hear the K2 companies are good though). At that price choose one of those two.

I have last year's K2 Company bindings (first bindings I've ever owned) and I've enjoyed them so far. My only complain is that the heelcup isn't adjustable and sometimes the toe strap will loosen if I take a hard fall or hit something. It is easy to readjust but can be annoying if others are waiting for you.
