Binding Help (Targas, Cartels or NRC's?)

Looking for some advice on what bindings to choose. I have narrowed it down to the 09 Burton Cartels, 09 Rome Targa, and 09 Ride NRC.

The last few years I mostly do freeriding but the last few trips out I have mixed in more flatland tricks, jumps and a few boxes. I would never expect more than a 70/30 split between freeride park. I really like the targas, the cartels can be had super cheap and I have read great things about the NRC's in regards to helping with knee pain (which I have).

I am looking for a comfortable, durable binding suitable for my riding. I currently have a Nitro Shogun and K2 darkstar but plain on getting a T-Rice or NS SL-R next season. Which binding do you suggest?

Thanks for the help

Go for the targas and use the soft strap insert.

I've got the NRC's and they are absolutely amazing. So customizable and perfect. Every time I strap in I fall in love with them again. Has a great full foot bed and shockpads for dampening and vibration control, you can tilt or raise the front, back, or sides of the footbed depending on what you like, they are stiff but not uber stiff so when tossing spins and ground tricks they still rock out. The rubber mesh designed toe strap is extremely comfortable and the ratchets are very high quality. I got these before the season to go on my new K2 Zero and put a good 40+ days on them this year. Have not had even the smallest problem with them.
