Rome Targa vs Ride NRC

I can get these two bindings for about the same price. I have 08 Targas so I know how good they are. I haven't spent much time on Rides and wouldn't mind checking out something different. I'm intrigued by the cantable footbeds on the NRC. Is it really beneficial, or is it just adding more weight? I love being able to easily release the ratchets on the Targas (even just a couple clicks on the front leg for the ride up). Do the new Ride ratchets work as easily? Can you rotate the highback on the NRC? Finally, they've got some of last years Betas for cheap, didn't these have ratchets that were a pain to release? I'm also considering this years Betas, SPIs, and possibly 390s if you have any thoughts about those or others. I ride all over the mountain, with pretty mellow / low park action. Thanks.

That's a tough decision. Both should be great. My buddy rides this year's NRC. Lots of adjustment because of the footbed. Not sure if you can rotate the highback, but I'd assume so. You don't want '08 Ride bindings with the shitty ratchets.
