Binding recommendation for legacy

I've just taken delivery of a new NS legacy and I'm thinking my old 07 burton custom bindings aren't going to do it justice. I'm after a fairly stiff binding with good forward lean adjustment. I don't do park, just like fast carving
I'm leaning towards K2 formulas but they may be too park-orientated (like the customs).
Any thoughts appreciated...

Rome Targas.

Lots of options to customize and get you to that feel you're looking for. They come with 2 different interchangeable strap inserts that will effectively increase/decrease the stiffness of the binding. Remove the inserts completely and you're left with a soft option more geared toward freestyle/park riding. Lots of strap placement adjustments and highback adjustments too. Very well thought-out and well constructed bindings.

I ride them on my Legacy and love 'em.

EDIT: Others will, I'm sure, chime in and recommend the Arsenals. I don't have personal experience with them, but they meet your criterion exactly and peeps seem to love them.

No durability issues so far *knock on wood*, but to be fair I've only been out on them half a dozen times since they were a mid-season pickup.

To me, most of the issues that I've seen with them are user error rather than defective bindings. I think a lot of people don't understand that you don't need to crank your straps down to the point of obvious stress on the parts, or that when you step on your highbacks, that they could have a tendency to break.

Aside from a couple of unstrapping issues, attributed completely to my pants catching on the releases, the bindings have been solid.

Targa's are nice & customizable...
especially if you want to switch from freeride to park..
they also have the quick auto strap & forward lean adjustments..
