Stiff Binding reccomendation for Steep fast riding ???

Hey guys.

Here the deal. I have TERRIBLE ankles. every time i turn toeside especially if im riding dust on crust and cant see small bumps, i can just fold my ankle foward and be done for the day (they get hurt directly under the top strap. i

I used to actually ride step ins because you use your body more and 'lift' the heel edge with the boot, rather than that leaning against the strap. It actually worked GREAT. But step ins really just have too many drawbacks beside that and strap binding have gotten so much better.

SO....What would you guys suggest. I have SUPER stiff boots, I have a pair of c60's that are MUCh better for response than my cartels. But i dont know if i can afford another set for my big mtn board, and they are almost dead...

I have heard Rome Targa and Ride SPI .

Is there anyone with bad ankles, or rides very fast techincal 'skiier' type terrain (bumpy, fast, steep) that has some suggestions?

OH ...and if anyone remebers 'Tounges' from way back in the day....those were great...they really allowed you to turn with your shin and not the strap...so maybe a binding that performs like that.???

Thanks in advance guys.

I think you're best off spending the money if performance is what you're looking for. You'll regret it if you dont.

Forget the Targas, the Arsenal binding is the way to go for stiffness. That's what I use and they are great.

I had surgery on my feet when I was younger and I have plates screwed into my bones. It's easy to twist them and lock up my ankles. It's pretty much what kept me out of college football. I found Arsenals to be the stiffest bindings I could find.
