Rome is definitely the way to go. i purchased a rome agent last year and just picked up rome 390's today. more of a freestyle set up but with rome you get an amazing product. ive had problems with K2's in my past, with the layers just coming apart on me, but i also rode ride preston's which were just terrible bindings. I also like that rome is from the east coast,which is where i ride. if i can survive an east coast winter, it will be amazing anywhere else.
