Default Targas or 390 boss???

Just wondering if anyone has ridden the two and can compare flex/response between the two?
I am an all mountain kind of rider. NO park but don't mind chasing natural jumps and features etc. Running salomon chiefs and have just ordered a machete GT.
Need canted footbeds for effed knees so choices are limited but liking the look of the rome gear.
The bosses seem all there , just want to know HOW flexy the highback maybe...

I say Targas, adjustable flex, and if you are over 200lbs or so sometimes those 390 highbacks can get overpowered on carves and such. Though I did ride them for 2 years before I got some Capos which are similar to the Targas, but much prefer the Capos on my Mod Rocker and Anthem. Plus the ankle strap on the 390 seems soft as well. I dealt with them for a while, but am much happier with a around a 7 flex binding on both boards, and the Mod is probably similar to the Machete you are looking at.

Cheers for that.
I come in round 170 so the flex may be a little more doable for me but on this board I was thinking something a little more direct might be the go as well.
Thanks

Targas are a nice binding, was looking to purchase a pair at my local shop, but they didn't have them and went with the Capos instead. Should work well with that board, just wish the Capos had the ankle strap adjustability but can't say I am unhappy with them at all.

Being a ride board, i researched the capos et al for quite some time and in the end decided I might chase the romes for the extra options on the cant (wrecked knees) and frankly, better reports, durability wise and such.
I hope you aren't having any issues.

No issues at all but the Targas do come with multiple footbeds. Whereas the Capos just come with the 2.5, but I tended to use the 2.5 with my Romes, so it's fine. Really like the Capos aside from snow getting in the ratchets and making me fiddle with the release, but have had the same problem with Rome and Burton bindings too.

So maybe the complaining is just dramatic over emphasis on stuff that just happens to pretty much most bindings?!
have you set your highbacks up parallel with the edges and if so, does everything sit ok?
I run 15/15 and worry about whether stuff will accomodate the adjustment. Not just on ride's but i had a set of prophecyss that didn't like the rotation much either.
Cheers for the feedback...
I'm rethinking the capos now!!! love the chassis.

I do set up the bindings parallel with the the board, but more because I prefer the lateral movement it allows, while still maintaining heel edge response. The only draw back to the Capo is if you wanted more than 2.5 canted beds, you would have to order them separately.

the targas are nice, but the highback adjustment won't stay put, it works it's way out throughout the day, i've resorted to duct tape and jamming plastic in there to keep it from closing up... slightly disappointed to have to do this to an almost brand new bindings, this is 2nd set it's happened on.

They have changed the highback adjustment to a lever system like Burton and Ride run. Easy trick is to remove the spring from the mechanism, will help with that on the older ones.
