ive heard nothing but good things about the rome 390s they are supposed to be like pillows so for someone who puts a lot of force on their bindings the 390s would probly be the best bet but from what ive read they seem to be park oriented

ok..

I think that may hurt ALOT.

Honestly my first choices for bindings were the k2 cinches and the Rome 390's. But then somebody told me theat the pulley on the cinches tends to wear pretty fast and then you cant release the bindings and then someone told me the 390's were great but that the Targa's were built with stronger materials.

My top recommendation for big guys like you is usually either SPi's or Forces. Unions have a lifetime warranty against breakage on their baseplates, something that may be beneficial to a giant like yourself. SPi's are just a solid bombproof binding.

Cinches are pretty much gimmicky crap.

Targas aren't necessarily "stronger", they're stiffer. Which because you have more weight to throw around, the targas very well may feel like what 390's feel like to us "lightweights".

Snowboarding Is...

yeah im not really worried about the weight of the bindings. I just need them to be sturdy enough so i dont snap them when a try to do a power move.

I've always been a fan of Ride bindings. They've just always fit me really well and been comfortable. Presently rocking SPI's.

What, the SPI's? I don't think they would've been mentioned 3x in this thread if they weren't.
