Rome Notch & Union Data's

Thinking about getting this as a set up for my powder trip to kashmir,
seem to be the only non-burton products i could find under sierras powder section (burton dont allow them to ship their products out of the US).

Anyone used or own either of the two and can comment on them?
and i weigh 180 lbs, would the 162 be to small? as i think i 168 might be a bit long.

give me your opinions.

other options for bindings are: Rome Arsenal, Union Force.

Must take durability into account for bindings also as i will not have access to new parts

I'm about 180 lbs, and I use a Mullet 160 in powder. It's big enough to float but easy to toss around in the trees.

Also consider the Venture Euphoria...

Venture Snowboards

That is a very good price for that board.

I ride a Rome Flag 168 and Union Data's. The notch is definitely a bit more Powder oriented than my flag so you'll be straight with that. The Data's may be a bit soft overall for just straight powder, but they are definitely responsive and super cush on your feet. I went from SPi's to Raiden Phantom's to Data's and the Data's are the most comfortable of those 3. Are they the ultimate free-ride binding, no. Will your feet love you for using them yes.
