Bindings Rome 390, Targas, or K2 Formulas

So i just sold my NS SL-R and plan on getting a new boards (old one was too big for me). Thanks to all the people that replyed on my thread about it. Ill probably get another SL-R, but I am open for options. Right now I am trying to figure out what bindings I want. Ill be 80% mountain and 20% park. I was going to get the Rome 390, but people say it is too soft and I would be better off with the Targas or K2 Formulas. Any ideas? Also, if you have other suggestions I'll be happy to take them.

Also I wear a size 9.5 boot. Will a S/M Targa/390 be better? I hear that a L/XL will be too big.

Thanks in advance

PS i forgot about the FLUX bindings as well. Feedbakcs and the Titan RX

If getting the Targas, get the L/XL for the 9.5 boot. You can adjust the binding down in size a bit and the 9.5 will be fine. The Targas are stiff, but you can adjust the front and back movement by changing out the inserts. I use my Targas everywhere on the mountain without any issues.

My brother has the K2 Sweaters (pretty much the same as the Formulas) and he thinks their a great binding for all mountain use (although he sticks mainly to the park).

You can't go wrong with either, IMO.

I have the 390s and I wear a 10.5 and use the L bindings and I think these are too big for that.

I really like these bindings, and I find them stiff enough. But I don't know I think it's the boot that is the most important for stiffness, maybe I'm wrong.

Anyways I've been happy with them, hug the boot tight and comfy.

Targas.

The 390 is a park binding.

definitely go targas for 80% mountain riding. plus they're fine in park, but 390s slay in the park.

I had L/XL 390s with a 9.5 boot, and it was the right fit. Get the L/XL if you go with the Romes.
