Rome's for freeride?

I'm probably going to end up selling my Burton Missions, and I want something fairly stiff to go along with my new Salomon F22's. I've been looking at either Rome Arsenals/Targas or Ride SPIs. What do you guys think? I'm fairly set on the Arsenals, although I have heard shop guys say that Rome bindings don't hold up well to freeriding. I know the 390s are more of a freestyle binding, but I always thought the Arsenals were a stiff freeride binding. Will all of these three bindings be stiffer than my Missions, and what do you suggest between Rome or Ride.

Thanks.

The targa's can be made pretty darn stiff with the stiff ankle insert. I don't think you can go wrong with either the Targa's or the new SPi's though

What about the Arsenals? I like those better because of the price.

Whoever is teling you that Rome bindings don't hold up is full of crap. They are very good bindings.

I wasn't told necessarily that they break down, just that they aren't ideal for freeride.

I just got a pair of new Targas for $200. I was also looking for a stiffer binding and I love em.

If you don't want to spend that kind of $$$ for Targas, get the Arsenals.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU
