Default Yay finally decided on 09 Tarags. Should I go with L/XL?

I finally decided to go with the 09 Targas. I currently wear size 9 DC Balance boots. I've gone to a 9.5 before depending on mfg. I was curious if I should go with the L/XL size. In looking around the S/M size only goes to 9.

Thoughts?

Thanks

Thanks.

Do you see any problems with going to the larger size? I'm concerned that if I go with the S/M I would be maxing it out. In the future if I had to go 9.5 boots. I don't know what that would mean for the S/M.

I saw on sierrasnowboard's site the sizing chart:
Binding size S/M L/XL
Men's boot 6-9 9+

Possibly. Targas might be different, but I wear size 9.5 boots (with a reduced footprint) and my L/XL 390s are too big. There's a good amount of extra space on the sides of the boot (probably about 1 cm total). If it's possible, you should take your boots to a shop and see how they fit in the bindings.

DON'T GET S/M

Rome is small; S/M is tiny and basically a completely different binding

S/M will fit, as well as being a bit smaller/lighter. There's plenty of space, but as they mentioned the toeramp at full extension will still leave some overhang. Also, the straps won't be extra long, but not that big of a deal for the trade-off imo. L/XL will be easier (for a beginner) to strap in and give you more extension on the gaspedal. Being stuck in the middle too, I went for the smaller size and am very happy.

i have 9 and 9.5 boots (vans, ride), and got the l/xl. i think they fit fine. you just have to adjust the binding to the smaller setting and everything should work fine. i heard that the s/m highback is like 2inches shorter. thats the main reason i went with the x/xl. i was concerned about the toestrap, but making the adjustments help a lot

Thanks all.

I think I will go with the L/XL. I'd rather err on the side of slightly larger than being too small.

Wow S/M has a 2" difference in the highback? That's quite a difference

Good choice, Mediums would have been way too small for you.
