Default Most Cushioned Bindings?

The last few times I've been out riding, I've realized that my bindings are definitely not the most cushioned and don't absorb as much shock/vibration as I'd like. By the end of the day, my feet have taken a pounding because of the lack of cushioning. I am looking for a binding that has a shit ton of cushioning/shock/vibration dampening so that my feet aren't hating me after a few hours.

Although I'm not a park rat, I lay down the butter and turn the whole mountain into my park...So something that's not a really stiff binding is what I'm after. I was thinking about the Rome 390's or Targas, but wasn't sure how good they were at reducing vibrations/shock etc.

Or, if anyone has some other suggestions, that would be great.

one of those is more cushy then the other, I forget which though someone here can tell ya.

I ride the 2009 K2 Autos currently they are the cushiest ride I've felt in a while, they use full "harshmallow" foam on the entire base plate.

get a piece of thin rubber, put it under neith your base plate after cutting wholes for the screws and making it the same shape as the plate.

youll get a bit more rise and a bit of a dampening from vibrations and chattering.

make sure your screws are long enough though... you may need longer ones.

I second Harshmellow tech from K2. I've got Harshmellow boots and it helps to absorb shock from those big booters or even vibrations from riding on hard pack

I was looking at those since the adjustable footbed is interesting. I'm going to have to check them out over the weekend.

Burton Triad Lounges are super cushy... I also recomend the Rides and K2's but take a look at Union's... I have the Data's and I swear they are the most comfortable binding I have ever ridden
