Best all-mountain bindings

I've been riding some light bent metal bindings for a few years, but need something stiffer. My riding style is aggressive backcountry with rock, tree, and cloud jibs...I like to throw a little style off my cliff hucks.

I really should know more about what's out there, but honestly spend more time riding than worrying about products. Anyone have any suggestions? Ride? Flow? Thanks.

Ride NRCs (have them and love them), Rome Targa's, Union Forces. Plenty of reviews on here about all of them.

Ride CAD or SPI will do the job as well

Yeah now that I look closer at your post you seem a little more freeride oriented than all mountain (which I assume means going into the park as well)

I love my Ride SPi and Flow NXT AT as all-mountain bindings. Someone loves his Burton Cartel, Rome 390s (but I don't) and others... I think it's impossible to сhoose BEST bindings. How many people, are so much and opinions :-)

It's going to be difficult for us to tell you what the "best" binding is. I have not ridden everything thats out there but I'll throw my 2c in. It may be blasphemy around here, but I am partial to Salomon bindings. Just picked up a pair of Salomon Relay Pro GIFT's and they are ridiculous. Easy to set up, easy to adjust, earth friendly, and very solid.

Edit: Also, their toe cap this year is sick. It can be ridden as a toe cap or just as a regular strap.

I use both Bent Metal and Flow - both are older models (circa 2001ish). Flows are extremely comfortable, but not so easy to get in/out of in powder.
Honestly, I don't spend much time thinking about bindings. As long as they're not Burtons, have adjustable heel cups, the straps ratchet down well, and they hold your feet to the board that's all that really matters to me. The boots and the board are way more important, IMO.
If you need more support maybe just buy some new straps/highbacks for your Bent Metals? I love the simplicity of their bindings.

Union Force SL's are pretty sick if you're mostly into freeriding. Pretty indestructable.

Rome Targa are excellent with great service behind the product.
